The latest leg on my Virtual Hike was from the Mount Allen Cemetery in Hays, Kansas to The Geographic Center of the United States.
You can see that it was only about 100 miles so it only took a couple of weeks of walking.
Gaylord is where my 4th Great Grandparents William and Eliza Bunt were living in the late 1800’s and where William passed away.
The marker is not too exciting. It is simply a stone pyramid with a flagpole coming out of the top. Of course it has a plaque stating that it is the Geographic Center. I visited this location many years ago when Kansas was part of my territory as a Field Service Engineer.
I saw a lot of Kansas then, and ended up visiting every single county. Believe me, Kansas is not so flat.
I am well on my way to the next destination which does not have a family connection. However, it is known for something interesting. Stay tuned 🙂
