Find Some Blue On a Map

Updated: Jul 8, 2022

(Vacationville, USA) -- Full disclosure, this is NOT a news story. This IS a story. It's a story about a girl who needed to drive until she found some blue on a map, meet up with friends from high school who still get together regularly, walk barefooted in some cool green grass and just enjoy unplugging for a bit.


I'm not going to apologize for a single bit of it. I'm going to share with you a bit about the week with family and friends.


After we all went through covid, we need this so much. It's almost like the bit that comedian Chris Rock once did explaining a women's needs. I think he said, "women need food, water, compliments and the occasional pair of shoes!"

Well, I needed some time with my people and it was all that I thought it would be and more.


We started our trek southeast with a little detour off highway 50, mainly road construction slowing us to a crawl had my farm and ranch, back-roads husband wanting to cut south on a dirt road. "Do you know where you're goin? Are we going to be lost-ish?" lol I said.

"Trust me!" his response. Ok, sure. Why not?

He turned south on county road D west of Kendall, KS to take us to the Sutton Siding for BNSF and there, not far away was an historical marker for the Santa Fe Trail, an Indian Mound.

The sign was torn apart so he picked it up and held it so that we could read more about the site.

Cool! A little trip during the trip.
