We left Denver and entered Kansas on Friday, I-70 all the way. The first stop was Goodland Kansas at a KOA. We arrived at Abilene Kansas on Saturday for a three day stay. Abilene is 450 miles east of Denver and we are finally out of the smoke and air pollution. Kansas is known for storms and hail but so far the storms are staying west of our location.
Here are a few things we observed as we drove east on I-70.
I-70 is a good road with a few rough areas that need work
Scenery along I-70 does not change
The mountains are gone, Kansas is flat
Corn fields start appearing as we go east
Oil wells are scattered along I-70
Hundreds of wind turbines for electric power are along I-70
Trees start appearing more as we drove east
Ground elevation slowly going down from Denver's 6000+ elevation
Abilene elevation is 1160 feet
