After Nebraska we turned south. We drove through Kansas City Missouri and into Kansas. We passed Fort Leavenworth and headed down the Frontier Military Scenic Byway to Fort Scott. We stopped at the fort for Lunch. There was some construction going on, but we could still see the places.
It’s also a great place to fill up water bottles and get some old fashioned candy. We picked up some lemon drops and black licorice. I think we were the only ones out that day. It was in the middle of the day in the middle of the week, and we had the place to ourselves (aside from the workers of course).
After Fort Scott we continued south into Arkansas. Along the way we made sure to pass Pittsburg, Kansas (where some of my family lived for a time, thinking it was Pittsburgh, PA…it’s a long story). And thus ended the next day of our cross country road trip.
