On the way out of Junction City we went by Ft. Riley, an army base. the eastern part of Kansas is much different than the western part of the state. It was green hills and many trees. Very pretty.
We made it through Kansas City without too much traffic. That place is enormous. It goes on forever! We arrived in Columbia, MO around 4pm so stopped at a Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Had the BEST steak we've had in a long time. Columbia is Nascar driver Carl Edwards' home town.
Since we had eaten early and weren't too tired we drove through St. Louis and on to Lebanon, Illinois. We should be able to make it home in 5-6 hours tomorrow. Lon will probably sleep for a whole day!! He is breathing better now at the lower elevations. Gets winded some with exertion but not nearly as bad as in the high country.
It's been a wonderful trip filled with lots of memory-making events. We've seen a LOT of people, and a LOT of different places. Can't believe a whole month has passed. Will try to post tomorrow after we get home and settled. Take care. Nite. The moon is gorgeous. Almost full!!
P.S. I forgot to mention that we have gone from 8% humidity in California to 84% here tonight. Can sure feel the change!!
