Coronado Heights, Lindsborg, KS

Coronado Heights is a hill, near Lindsborg, KS, that rises 300 feet above the Smoky Hill River valley.  The castle was constructed in 1932 by the Works Progress Administration.  The sandstone Dakota formation holds many fossils that date back millions of years.

Coronado Heights has a beautiful mix of wildflowers (they weren’t in bloom yet, I’ll be back!) Yucca, spiderwort and butterfly milkweed are some of the wildflowers.


Happy Easter

Mushroom Season

It’s that time of year, to go mushroom hunting.  There are numerous spots around Kansas that one can usually find some morels.  Although if you are like me, there are never enough.  I love morels!

Here are some mushrooms we have in Kansas, we even have a state park named after them!
