Another Lark Inn property in Cottonwood Falls. This is Fox Hollow, as with all their properties, a wonderful place to stay!! Comfortable 2 bedroom cottage, within walking distance to downtown Cottonwood. We ate at Ad Astra Food and Drink, and also at the Grand Central Hotel, so good!!
A trip to this area wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve.
Elk Falls, is located in Elk County, KS. It is named after the falls that are located near the town on the Elk River. Elk Falls claims to be the World’s Largest Living Ghost Town with a population of approximately 100, and also the Outhouse Capital of the World.
I love this sign that directs you to the falls.
There is a well travel path that takes you from the bridge down to the river.
This outhouse says it all! Friday and Saturday before Thanksgiving they give outhouse tours.
In 1972 the Buffalo River was declared a National River, one of the few remaining free-flowing, undammed river in the lower 48 states. It originates at the highest part of the Boston Mountains of the Ozarks and flows 135 miles before joining the White River. The National River is popular for camping, float trips, and fishing. There are over 100 miles of hiking trails. The best way to see the river are by the trails or a float trip. I’m looking forward to a return trip to explore the river!
This looks like a trail tree!!
Rocky Mountain Elk were introduced to the region a few years ago. The herd now numbers around 800.
Kansas is such a beautiful and diversified state. From the prairies and farmland to rolling hills and wooded areas, there is such beauty in our natural surroundings. Wylie and I are taking trips around Kansas, we will be exploring areas off the beaten paths.
