The last time we hiked at the Konza, we accidentally got off the trail and ended up putting in a few extra miles. This time around, we decided to run the 4.4 mile trail and we studied the map before we left.
The views were beautiful. We were blessed with cloud cover and a slight breeze which made for really nice temperatures. It was just past peak wildflower season, but there were a few blooms here and there.
We actually put in nearly five miles when it was all said and done. Even with our advance study session on the maps, we still had a wrong turn or two, which meant a little back tracking. We also ran the trail "backwards," which meant the hills were a little less kind. Who says Kansas is flat?
