Wonderful element of the Kansas-Rock-Tour. Remanent of the inland ocean that Kansas once was. Huge odd rocks and great hiking trails. Very special site -- whimsical, spiritual or just fun??? Maybe all 3.

I was told about Rock City while in Marysville, KS for a high school reunion. The limestone concretions formed when Kansas was part of the Great Inland Sea are well worth a stop. Some shaded areas for picnicking and restrooms. The lady taking admission was...More
