Going north at the Kansas Turnpike Cassoday exit you now get the pleasure of driving into the beautiful green hills that you have been scanning as you speed along the Turnpike. But now you can take your time and enjoy the turns. There are a couple of stopping points and overlooks especially created for your enjoyment. Each ravine and creek has tinges of purple against the brush and green hills. There a few other white blossoms as well. More and more purple as you drive along the winding Scenic 177 Byway. Gazing into the trees with hues of purple and hints of green in the upcoming canopy fill the creek bottoms. The cattle trucks are also joining in with the millions of cattle that will graze the grass this summer. The cowboys are ready at the pens waiting to release the beef to graze the greening hills. It is Spring in the Flint Hills. We look forward to hosting guests at the Spring Street Retreat. We're excited for you to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside and this charming little town.
Writing this with weekly updates about what is happening at Spring Street and the places I love in the beautiful Flint Hills.
