Old Photos From My Visit To Kanorado In December 2000
I got a shot of the Kansas state sign.
During this visit, I went to the post office
to ask where town hall was, and to my surprise, the locals were
having a Christmas party at the post office!
They even had goodies and stuff!
I was standing by the west side of town and looking west. I would estimate somewhere past that tractor is the Colorado border.
This was a neat experience! While mingling at the post office party,
I spoke of how the museum across the street was closed. Well, this friendly local told me she has a key to get in there,
and so we visited the museum! Kanorado is definitely a friendly small town!
In the top right photo,
I actually jumped inside the 100-year-old caboose. Also, I was told the structure in the bottom photo was a
temporary holding cell for criminals in the old days. Wow!
And there she is ... Hazel Estes, the mayor and chief
executive of the greatest town in all of Kansas! I actually drove to
Goodland to meet her where she works and I really appreciated her spending some time
in conversation with me. Thank you Hazel! :)
