Highpoint # 36  Sucess!

Flew to Denver, spent the night in Burlington, CO, then visited Mount Sunflower the next morning. Directions made it easy to find. Highpoint # 36 for me.

Dusty Road  Sucess!

Came down from I-70 @ exit 1. Dusty road but not much washboarded. Shorter drive on gravel down to US-40 - would recommend coming and going that way.

Well marked, but in the middle of nowhere  Sucess!

It's down a dirt road about 10 miles in the middle of miles of corn fields. Nice place.

Way Up High There's a Land that I Heard of Once in a Lullaby.  Sucess!

After being chased off of private property attempting to do a county high point in Colorado earlier in the day, this was a lovely consolation prize. State high point number six for me! Mount Sunflower was a beautiful place to be, isolated from other folks during a global pandemic.

just drove right up  Sucess!

The way was well-marked. Highpoint is on private property. Bring a beer and leave it in the register box for the landowner.

Trying to get Divorced   Sucess!

Landed in Denver for a week vacation in Estes Park, and I was like, let's take a small 6-hour roundtrip detour to Kansas. Wife and family were not happy. Fun times though!

HP #15!  Sucess!

Took advantage of a delayed flight and made the day drive from Denver to nab this state highpoint.

Farmlands, fields, crops... however you want to describe this HP. I enjoyed it though!

A long ride from Denver with my Dad.  Sucess!

This was the first highpoint I did with my Dad. We left in the morning from Denver and made it back about eight hours later. A long, boring drive on the interstate and twenty two unpaved miles down a farming road past two signs leads you to this bare mound in farm country. Did see some horned larks at the summit, which was kind of cool. We took some pictures but what you see is mostly what you get. My Dad's first highpoint, thirty two for me.

Mount Sunflower #15  Sucess!

Welp, I'll never have to visit Kansas again. There truly isn't anyplace like home. I imagine the storm cells and sunsets are gorgeous here, though.
