I woke up early early to drive from Toledo to Kansas City to Denver in two days. In Kansas City my friend's aunt and uncle gave me a lovely bed to sleep in, the most massive bag of snacks for the road, and a whirlwind tour of Kansas City. At the only non-fast food option in Russell, KS, I had a waitress very concerned that I fill my stomach. I did.
Apparently Hoosier hospitality includes cats. At the above rest stop, four cats welcomed visitors. I did not take one with me, although I was offered one.
Illinois hospitality included lots of recycle options.
Sadly, they offered no recycle options for the plastic bottles filling the vending machines. Thankfully, I have my own recycling option that is all-inclusive.
The sunset in Kansas was pretty spectacular, so I pulled over to the side of the interstate and took a picture.
The grass on the side of the road was interesting, so I picked a few sprigs.
