|One hundred eighty degrees of northwestern Kansas|
On clear days like these on the prairie, nothing gets in the way of running off miles. Arrival in Burlington, Colorado, was early enough that I could get settled at the motel, refresh, and then wander out to play tourist.
Following signs to the county fairgrounds led me to the Kit Carson County Carousel that once enchanted children at Elitch Gardens near Denver. (I recall visiting there once, but at an age when roller coasters were more interesting than carousels.)
Sad that it is only open in the summer. I took the snapshots through windows in the carousel's winter enclosure.
