105. Cheyenne Bottoms

Our adventure July15th took us to Cheyenne Bottoms.  It is an amazing nature journey.  When people talk about Kansas, they often think of plains and flat landscape.  We have seen many varieties of landscape and nature throughout our journeys this year.  We have lived in Kansas most of our lives and I (Angel) was surprised and impressed to find this treasure in the middle of Kansas.  It was absolutely amazing to find the wetlands and the wetland wildlife on this journey.  We saw tons of water birds, turtles, fish, and even a deer or two.  :)  We even got to talk about Moses in the rushes and compare it to what we were seeing.

One side of the road is very dry.  They haven't let the water out from the other side of the road.  We found the signs warning about high water and impassible roads really funny since they were in front of completely dry areas of land.
We found an observation tower just off the road. 
How could you possibly make the wetlands wheelchair accessible?
