Castle Rock, Gove County, KS

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.
