It was a beautiful clear crisp fall day, perfect for a trip to Post Rock Country.

I spent a wonderful week in Missouri with the grandkids while their parents were on vacation. NO adult supervision!! They kept poor ole granny busy, getting them to school, cheer, riding lessons, church activities, dentist. Thankfully everything was written out for me and I didn’t miss anything or forget a child anywhere!
Fall in the Ozarks (actually anytime of the year) is beautiful.
This is a bridge on Historic Route 66 just outside of Spencer MO
It’s been a rather slow week at Farmer Days. Mr. Farmer is out of town and Wylie is “suppose” to be keeping quite and limiting his activities due to an injury, so I though I would look back to my photos from October 2013. It SNOWED on October 18, 2013. We could use the moisture now, but I would like it as rain and not snow. I’m certainly not looking forward to winter. Why is autumn so beautiful, but so short?!? I hope you can get out and enjoy this beautiful day.
On our adventure to Denmark, we encountered numerous abandoned homesteads. It’s sad to see this part of our history in ruins. I can only imagine what it would have been like out on the prairies of Kansas. I just received a book titled Sod and Stubble by John Ise. It’s about a young woman and her family homesteading near Downs, KS in the 1870’s. I looking forward to reading it. I’m sure there will be an adventure to that area when I finish the book!
These photos were taken around numerous places between here and there. Mostly there, in Post Rock Country.
Twin Grove School 1870-1947 Historical Site Lincoln, County, KS
I’ve come across numerous cellars and I have not ventured down into any of them. I really doubt if I ever go into one!
Denmark Kansas, located in Lincoln County, was settled in 1869 by Danish Lutherans. The church was completed in 1880, the bell tower and entry was added in 1901. The Denmark Hotel was built in 1917 when the railroad came through the town. At one time there was a bank and several other businesses. Today there is a co-op and also a great destination for pheasant hunting. Spillman Creek Lodge.
