Social distancing Saturday – Sand Hills State Park

Last week, we practiced social distancing at the Old Oxford Mill in Oxford, Kansas. This week we headed to Sand Hills State Park, right near Hutchinson, Kansas. During these trips, we make the boys drive (and we drive our 1998 Camry!) and we try and take state highways or two-lane roads whenever possible.

What a great park with flat and easy walking trails. There’s a portion that is heavily wooded, and we thought maybe we’d see the Blair Witch.

We did a find part of a dead animal’s leg…

We climbed to the top of a dune.

It was muddy and wet in some places and maneuvering Ali around it proved to be quite the feat. At one point, Zach had to carry her.

We heard frogs, but couldn’t see them.

After, we convinced ourselves that we need Braum’s ice cream shakes. One small chocolate (me), one small vanilla (Scott), one medium chocolate (Zach), one medium peppermint (Adam).

On the way home, we found out St. Louis and Kansas City were both going on lockdown. Back to real life. #CovidChaos
