Labor Day weekend is a chance to travel farther than a six hour radius from home and see more of this great country. We try to go to places where half of America is not visiting the same sites. Therefore, Kansas and Oklahoma! The goal of this trip was to shoot Natural Falls in Siloam Springs, Oklahoma. Never made it. We spent a lot of time on Kansas. All the road tips to Indiana to see family, there is absolutely nothing to shoot in Kansas, well not off I-70 anyway. It wasn't until we headed south to Wichita that we found some cool stuff.
First stop was Monument Rocks in Gove County. Kansas. Rock formation in the middle of farm land. Erich flew the drone around and we snapped a few photos - great start to the trip!!

The mine also has a large storage facility where movies, records, costumes and all things that need to be preserved are stored. There are no tours of the storage facilities but they did have a few items on display. We were in the mine at least 4 hours. That kind of skewed our time line a bit, but it was totally worth it!
The Philbrook Museum was a mansion that was donated to the City of Tulsa in the early 1930's and converted into an Art Museum. The mansion is an Italian Renaissance villa and was home of oil pioneer Walter Phillips. The gardens are absolutely amazing!! The art was pretty cool too.
This house was a surprise. Just a little log cabin in the garden.
