The American Lake Trail in Aspen Colorado was highly recommended due to its spectacular scenery, golden Aspen trees and the stunning mountain lake. We were also warned it’s a leg burner. This should be fun!
Our first drive through Kansas and our friends were correct – it is FLAT! The state gains in elevation as we drove west from Missouri but it’s not noticeable. Our goal today…visiting the highest point – Mount Sunflower!
We are driving the Kansas flat lands and suddenly out of nowhere rises Monument Rocks – one of the Eight Wonders of Kansas! Impressive!
