DAY 29: VISITA, OK TO INDEPENDENCE, MO

Our journey continues on its 29th day. We begin in the northeast corner of Oklahoma. While the sun rose, we caught some Buffalo out on a pasture.  We then arrived in Kansas and came across a graveyard filled with out of commission cars. There were many awesome vehicles such as this vintage Buick from the 1950’s. The style of the cars was cool to see and it was interesting to see so much chrome being used. White Ranch in Caney, KS would be our next stop. They are a horse ranch and stable that houses, breeds, and performs veterinary services. Their large red sign was lovely and featured a big horse atop. We began to see these oil derricks. They are used to dig a hole for an oil well, then to push the drill pipe deep into the earth. On this private land, the owner had permitted the machine to be planted and operated. The I.D. 4 handles the Kansas roads wonderfully. Kansas is known to be full of green plains and pastures and we get a nice display of the land. As we maneuver through the Midwest it isn’t uncommon for us to see rain and rolling dark clouds. This area is known as “Tornado Alley” because of its predisposition for Tornadoes to strike. Thunderstorms are very common in this region as well and we have been seeing them frequently. The Lao Buddhist Associates of Kansas in Wichita was incredible. They were kind and let us in the parking area to take some photos with the temple and it’s wondrous architecture in the background. We felt like we were transported Southeast Asia. We crossed the Kansas/Missouri border which interestingly enough both foster cities with the name “Kansas City”. We entered the downtown area of Kansas City, MO and got a nice view of the buildings. We headed north and crossed the Missouri River using the Christopher S. Bond Bridge.
