Response to Mount Sunflower, Kansas (4,039 feet)
...I summitted the mighty Mount Sunflower, KS on 12/30. Again, i really really don't mean to knock the guidebooks. I WILL get them at some point. But this was another highpoint that was simple to find with just a good state map. From I-70, take exit 1, head south instinctively, and eventually you'll see signs for Mt. Sunflower. I walked the last couple miles to the "top", in a continuing attempt to at least have some token experience at each highpoint. Not much to say about it. All the jokes have already been repeated about this great peak. Nice trail monument and register. HP #8!
