Monument Rocks Natural Wonder Kansas
On our way back from Colorado we decided to stop by and see The Monument Rocks. It was a bit out of the way in the middle of thousands of acres of corn and wheat on a gravel road, but it was worth it. It is one of the natural wonders and in the flat lands of Kansas, in the middle of nowhere this is deserving of one of the Natural Wonders in Kansas and the United States. You can do a simple google to find out more about this and if going out to see it, make sure you come out the same way you went in, otherwise, you could get lost in the corn fields having no idea where you are going.
