Ahhhh! A layover day! The day heated up quickly today, peaking at around 95 degrees.
Not much to be found in Scott City. We did locate a Dairy Queen where I had two milk shakes. Tomorrow will be a day to relax and possibly a visit to the city swimming pool.
On Tuesday we head to Tribune, Kansas, and then on Wednesday we’ll be in Colorado.
We came to a roadside marker indicating George Washington Carver once lived on the spot here in Kansas.
Carver’s prolific inventive career resulted in hundreds of products derived from sweet potatoes and peanuts. He graduated from high school, went on to college, and finally received his Master’s Degree. He taught for 47 years at the Tuskegee Institute. At a time when most African Americans were forbidden from attending school, his achievements are amazing.
