I’m not sure, but there may not be a more boring stretch of road than I-35 and I-135 north from Oklahoma City and then I-70 west from Salina KS. We spent the night in Goodland KS just because it was about halfway between OK City and our next destination, Grand Lake CO. It was quite easy to explore the entire city of Goodland (pop. 5,000), and the highlight of the day was discovering the 80-feet tall easel on which rested Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. Along with the grain elevators, the grand easel dominated the skyline of Goodland. We saw one local restaurant—a good ole boys’ bar and grill. I had neither a pickup truck nor a gun nor a shirt with the sleeves cut out, so we opted for Wendy’s chili.
I’m not sure how this thing survives Kansas tornados.
While Van Gogh dominates the skyline, the horizon in Goodland is dominated by Kansas corn.
