Kansas Adventures, October, Part 3

From Castle Rock, we went south to Highway 4 on 20 miles of well kept dirt road. We could have gone north to 70 which was maybe 5 miles less distance, but we wanted to travel roads we haven't been on before and we've been on 70 plenty of times.

At Highway 83, we turned north until we came to the sign for Monument Rocks. At the sign we turned south then east on dirt road for 7 miles. We encountered about 20 deer who ran at our approaching truck.

Monument Rocks. Erosion has carved these chalk pyramids from what was once the floor of a vast inland sea (the flood). This site is the first natural landmark chosen by the US Dept. of Interior as a National Natural Landmark.

These chalk beds have eroded into unusual spires and shapes, making them spectacular landmarks on the plains of western Kansas!

This looked like a fossil of a petrified tree stump.

Al enjoyed studying the rock layers and as a creationist could see evidences for the flood and if you want to talk to him ever about why evolution is a bad theory, well, he will be willing to talk!

God's creation is magnificent! Lord, You are worthy of our praise!
"This is what the Lord says - Your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb.
I am the Lord,
who has made all things,
who alone stretched out the heavens,
who spread out the earth by myself."
Isaiah 44:24
