When You are in Kansas Over the Holidays

Best sure and visit:

visitors descend hundreds of feet in a freight elevator and enter a world covered in glittering, geometric salt crystals.
The sparkling crystals during Kathleen and my visit last summer. The underground mine is remarkable.

  1. I will actually be traveling to KS for Christmas, visiting my in-laws in Coffeyville. They aren't too adventurous though. My wife will go shopping with her mom. I might go trout fishing with dad, or shooting rats at the dump. And we will gamble at several of the local Indian casinos - something I get no particular joy out of.

    As for mining tours, I have driven through Picher OK several times - on the way to a casino. Really a sad story there; the town was abandoned because of lead filled mine tailings.
