50 State Challenge - Kansas

When you think of Kansas you might just think it's another state in the Midwest for you to quickly drive through. However, there is more to Kansas that meets the eye, like Mushroom Rock State Park.

Off of Highway 140 in Kansas' is a small state park called Mushroom Rock State Park. It is a 5 acre park that is surrounded by farms and cattle. If you are looking for peace and quiet than this is the park for you. You have to go down miles of dirt roads to reach the park and on rainy days the dirt road can be treacherous. Often times you will notice that there isn't a soul in sight, so this park makes for an ideal spot for a romantic picnic

There are two huge mushroom shaped rocks in the tiny state park and there are several other oddly shaped rocks located there too. The two largest are approximately 25 ft tall, with caps about 15 ft wide. These rocks once served as meeting places and landmarks for Native Americans and early pioneers, like Kit Carson and John C. Fremont. They also say you are no longer allowed to climb on top of the rocks, but most people park their car under them and attempt to climb up anyway.

If you are in the area plug this address into your GPS and have fun exploring this tiny yet beautiful park.

Well That's One Way Down A Mountain....

Check out the video below to see how one daredevil gets down a mountain. Norwegian daredevil Eskil Ronningsbakken (Imagine trying to spell that last name when you were a child) decided to bike backwards down Norway's Trollstigen Mountain with only a bike helmet to protect him.

I have a theory about this guy, he either has a death wish or the worlds biggest balls. Either way I plan on an in-depth investigation and will report on my findings as soon as we can.

It turns out his balls are massive!
