Group_overlooking_River.jpg (36249 bytes)

In Great Falls, Montana just after we visited the Lewis & Clark Museum and just before a four-day canoe trip along the Missouri River.   The Kansas River is just as pretty and interesting as the upper Missouri, but Montana offers access, camping areas, and has a strong appreciation of their tourism economy.  It's time for Kansas to develop a bicycle/canoeing corridor that runs all the way from Manhattan to Kansas City.

Katy.jpg (208136 bytes)

Cycling on the Katy Bicycle Trail in Central Missouri is draws riders from all over the county and supports a bed & breakfast, winery, antique shop and restaurant economy that would have died long ago as airplanes displaced trains as a prime means of public transportation.  A thoughtful system of bicycles trails -- such as the Freedom Trail through eastern Kansas -- would be just as popular and hold just as much economic value.
