Sunday, June 7th: We were on the road again by 7:30 AM and headed northwest out of Kansas City. The sky was blue, the traffic was light, the scenery consisted primarily of farms with their rolling green hills of trees and some newly planted corn, and best of all, the roadside was totally void of those ugly billboards. It was a perfect day to drive, Sunday's usually are, and we thoroughly enjoyed the 5-1/2 hours that it took us to drive up to the Grand Island KOA located just off Interstate 80 near Grand Island, Nebraska. If there was a negative about the drive today we would have to say it was the relatively high winds that would occasionally cause both our trailer and our car to sway slightly. This took some getting used to but we knew that there was no real danger. One interesting thing about driving across our country is how much the scenery changes over the course of just 200 miles. When we left Kansas City we were driving through very hilly and somewhat tree covered countryside. As we entered Nebraska the land flattened and on both sides of the interstate there were vast acres of newly planted corn and almost no trees. The photograph above shows a typical cornfield but it is a poor substitute for what the human eye sees when viewing the same scene but with a panoramic view. Unfortunately, as Kathy pointed out, the corn is only as high as an elephant's ankle, and had it been taller considering the high winds we were experiencing today, the view of the waving corn in every direction would have been truly wonderful.
