The Konza Prairie. I love hiking out there. I consider it hiking (even though others consider it walking) because there are some steep hills, a little rocky terrain, etc.
I usually go out here once a week to get in some clean fresh air, and take in the gorgeous views.
There are different routes you can take, from 2.5 miles up to about 6.5. It doesn’t matter which one you take, they are all a great workout, with great scenery.
Luckily, they have maps placed at each new lap point so you know where you are and how much farther you have to go.
Last time I went, I almost came back blind. A grasshopper hit the corner of my eye so hard. It seriously hurt. Luckily, no bruising! And I think the little hopper lived.
The farther out you go, the more open the views. Every once in a while you can hear vehicles from the interstate, but mostly it’s just the sounds of nature.
I usually mix up the paths I take each time I go so there is less boredom.
I highly recommend walking these trails at least once, if not dozens more.
If you get tired of walking, just sit on some of the giant rocks they have placed intermittently and just enjoy the view. It’s well worth it.
Keep in mind, it’s a biological research station for K-State so be respectful. Stay on the trails. Don’t bring pets or bikes. Follow the instructions. And if you have a few spare dollars, throw them in the donation container for good karma!

We bought a house.
A gorgeous, single floor, three bedroom, two bath, attached garage, large backyard kind of house.
This is the first morning in what feels like months that I have been able to just sit on the couch and…sit.
It feels good.
I have an incredibly long post about our vacation coming up, but I had something I wanted to get off my chest.
Happy Endings might be one of my all time favorite tv shows.
Ever since I met J, I joined his co-rec softball team in the summer. He got a team together…4 or 5 years ago. After the first year, he got the company he works for to sponsor it.
After dealing with some frustrations over the past two years, we decided to get our own personal team together. However, we kept the team name that he created (along with the logo). Read More
Disclaimer: This post isn’t actually about ‘swinging’.
For those who don’t actually know my husband, he isn’t a hugely social guy. I have made that man go on so many new double dates, I used to feel kind of bad for him.
Untilllll…he accepted one on our behalf.
We thought we would just be doing lunch and bowling. We thought wrong.
And it was so much fun! Read More
There is a woman in my department who does not like Jeff Goldblum. So, obviously, we all have pictures of him at our desks.
However, I have a special picture at mine. I won this bad boy during a training session.
I seriously love trivia, competitions, and winning.
Man, this thing is glorious!
