KieferSuper foggy  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 13, 2016


Super freaking foggy and cloudy. Drizzly and cold. Only one there with no view (no surprise). Hiked across the ranch to tag the State Line HP. Actually needed GPS in order to not get lost.

The flash of rain which came a couple hours south of Mt. Sunflower did not make it to the dirt roads, thank goodness. We passed many fields of sunflowers coming and going from Mt. Sunflower, which was quite fitting.

The owners added a Free Public Library under a covered area next to the highpoint. Cool idea!

Registration box is full of hats, t-shirts, and other gifts. We added a Threadgill's shirt for Austin, Texas. Fun stop.

Visited this great HP with Kate on the way to Steve's wedding in Colorado later this same day. We loved the tiny library at the summit!

Date Climbed: May 22, 2015


Seriously ... Part of a three state Memorial Day vacation "dash." Came in from the north (Kanorado) and even with a Jeep just about went into the ditch twice due to the "gumbo" on the roads. The area had received almost 3" of rain the 2 days before and made the N-S travel close to impossible on the dirt roads. Spent $15 hosing the mud off the car in the next town. Crazy but true! Kudos to the guy on his bike that had ridden from Flagstaff, AZ.

MusiscaSnowy Day at Mt Sunflower
Date Climbed: Jan 31, 2015
The roads were good down the dirt road to Mt. Sunflower, but it was cold and windy. Despite this being a relatively flat summit, the vast expanse of the surrounding plains is pretty amazing for someone from the East like me. I would recommend if you're going through Kansas to make the stop.

Arrived 1.5 hrs after sunset. Strong wind made for a chilly "climb". Google's gps was right on, took some nice pics in the dark but didn't linger due to the biting cold. Lots of UFOs in the sky

Nice day drive out from Golden CO. I blew it and used my truck's GPS system for directions rather than the Summitpost beta. A little more scenic than I planned! Barbed wire fence gates and cows!

If I recall this one was in the middle of nowhere but the spot was marked with a cool metal sunflower.

Delightful, peaceful place with amazing cloud formations. 90 degrees and a bit buggy with flies during our visit. The covered picnic table made a nice lunch spot. #39 for me, #26 for Lillian, #10 for John, #9 for Barb. Fun road trip!

Interesting and surprisingly scenic drive on farming roads. Raced a "severe thunderstorm" back to Goodland on the way out.

Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2014


Gorgeous summer day. Not a cloud in the sky. Although no sunflowers were blooming this early, we happened to picked a weekend where all the cacti in the area (including the summit area) had huge yellow flowers. Also, surprisingly pretty views of the prairie-lands from the summit.

Got stopped by a state trooper on the way in and won a pricey ticket for speeding, but made it to the high point without much confusion. Stalked some cows on the prairie.
