My ongoing quest to get in 10,000 steps a day has me exploring new places to walk both in Lawrence and Kansas City. Neighborhood walks are convenient but get predictable, so on days off I like to seek out adventure. Last week this led me down to "the Mighty Kaw", more commonly known as the Kansas river.
In addition to lovely views of the water, train tracks, and dogs taking their owners on walks, I spotted a dolly watching the sun come up, a tree that I am pretty sure comes alive when the sun goes down, and a totally cool house number sign.
Just exactly the precise amount of adventure I was looking for. On a Tuesday morning.
P.S. This is the Kansas River Levee trail - I accessed it right over the bridge on North 2nd street.
