As a native Kansan, I invite you to visit and enjoy the Heartland of America. I grew up in a small Kansas farming community, lived in the Kansas City metro for more than 20 years and now live in Jefferson City, Missouri. Please browse my photos and maybe you'll find something you didn't know existed. Maxine

I don't know who the architect was - could've been the same one. Both of the pedestrian bridges were old railroad trusses that were no longer being used for trains.

Markus - LOL! It kinda reminds of the inside of a cattle trailer/hauler. At least there's enough space between the slats to easily take photos. Unlike the city of kansas walkway. Either way, I think they are just trying to prevent fools from throwing stuff at the trains that pass underneath. Maxine

These windmills are HUGE. They are at least 9 miles south of Lincoln (north of I-70), yet you can see them from a hill 1-2 miles north of Lincoln. You can see these from around the Lincoln exit of I-70 on east to where some of them are located very close to I-70.

This neat bronze is by Georgia Gerber. Click HERE to see all my photos of some of Georgia's wonderful work.

The Winstead's marque and art deco building in the background, brings back childhood memories of my days in post WWII K.C. We all thought everyone had a drive-in in their town like Winstead's. The smell of those burgers on a warm summers evening was as intoxicating to me as the Plaza was at the Christmas lighting on a cold crisp Thanksgiving afternoon. How fortunate to be raised in this cultural wonderland. I loved growing up in this gorgeous and historically important city.

Hi Maxine I know it wasn't responsible, but I couldn't help it with roads so straight, wide and virtually traffic-free. But at least I didn't go fast - a truck overtook me :-) I didn't see much - my memory of Kansas is huge grassland with small towns where people live with no rush. And incredible steaks :-) Marcin

Hi Maxine! I viewed Tony's photos of the ice storm - that must have been really bad! Let's hope it won't happen again! I also wish you a very happy 2008! Greetings, Anne

Your photos of your bear around the world are wonderful! Have a wonderful 2008. Greetings from Kansas City, USA, Maxine.

Thanks Anne. Fortunately, I didn't have much damage. I think Tony's shots are from around Joplin, Missouri and they got a lot more ice and had a lot more damage than where I live. Maxine
