Ascent Trip Report

Broke up the drive from Kansas City to Denver with a stop at a local brewery in Hayes (Lb. Brewing, pretty unexceptional beer but great restored building downtown and a gorgeous hostess named Dakota) and with this stop in Kansas right before the border. The GPS indicated that it would add an extra 2 hours to the trip, but I think that was factoring in a 15 mph speed limit down a nice dirt road, which we comfortably tripled. Beautiful blue skies and wide plains made it reminiscent (but not as gorgeous and bison-filled) as Nebraska's fantastic high point.
