This is the kind of road that I like to explore, off the beaten path.
I just found an app for the iphone and will hopefully be able to identify wildflowers, Wildflowers of the Great Plains.

Castle Rock, you have no idea what waits for you across this cattle guard and up the road. It never ceases to amaze me how diverse and varied our landscape is across Kansas. When people travel Western Kansas along I-70, most are speeding thru at 80 miles per hour, saying there isn’t anything to see or do in Western Kansas. Slow down, get off the interstate, it’s beautiful. I am posting more pictures than usual, this place really touched my soul.
The chalk was deposited from an ancient inland sea. There are seashells embedden in the rocks, that are so sharp, I had to carry Wylie.
Castle Rock is on private property, the roads are rutted and rugged. Please be respectful.

This is a recent purchase from Williams Sonoma and it is one of my favorite kitchen appliances.
The Phillips Pasta Maker comes with 4 discs that make Penne, Spaghetti, Fettuccine, and Lasagna Noodles. The recipe is so easy, 1 scoop of flour to 1/2 water. Even I can do it!
Let it mix
Then it extrudes the pasta, how easy is that? Fresh pasta cooks up faster than dried pasta, about 4 or 5 minutes.
Dinner is ready.
