We took off on the backroads to Lincoln county, one of our favorite places to go
Kansas is known for the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. We also have the Rim Man, a farmer really used his imagination to build this snowman out of tire rims.
Where’s Wylie? I always love to photograph him at the foot of a big old tree.
Beside the Post Rock Motel (which dates back to the 1950’s) is a wonderful Himalayan resturant. A tiny little building, with great food! It is definately worth a trip to Lincoln.
I had to look twice to find Wylie! That tree is huge. Do you know what kind it is? I know it’s not sycamore, and probably not cottonwood. It’s just wonderful. I really was surprised to see that Himalayan restarant out in post rock country, too. I love food like that. If I ever make it up there again — and I am working toward it! — I’d love to go there. I need to dig out my books about that area of your state and begin reading them now, before the days get long again and I’m putting in so many hours at work I’m too tired to read at night.
Are you still dealing with drought? That creekbed looks mighty dry. We’re sopping wet now, which is all to the good — as long as it stops for a while. In my part of the state we were rainy and cold (38-45F) all last week, but we escaped the ice that cruised across the central part of the state. Thank goodness!
It’s always so wonderful to hear from you!! I don’t know what kind of tree it is, but I’ll be up that way again when it has it’s leaves. That’s alway a help.
We are still in a drought. The ponds in the pastures are drying up. We do need rain for the wheat crop as it didn’t get any moisture when it was planted in the fall. The April showers will probably come as a flood. That certainly fills ’em up fast.

If this works, this is another photo of Wylie by a big tree (zoom in to see Wylie). It is a cottonwood tree located in Butler County, KS. I went by it last summer and a large portion of it has broken off from a wind storm.
