Rolling Hills Refuge - Bongos

Written by Casual Tourist on 03 Aug, 2000

I think the most unusual animals that we saw were the Bongos. It has always been my understanding that bongos were little drums played by beatniks. I never knew that they were also animals. As you can see from the photos, they…Read More

Rolling Hills Wildlife Refuge -- Camels

Written by Casual Tourist on 03 Aug, 2000

Another area of interest for me was the camels. The two dromedary camels remained right next to the viewing area the entire time we were by their enclosure. Though one of the camels simply stood around with a very composed look on its…Read More

Smoky Hill Winery

Written by Casual Tourist on 08 Oct, 2000

Just north of Salina on 9th Street we found a wonderful winery. Who would have thought -- a Kansas Winery? My favorite wines are sweet dessert wines and Smoky Hill Winery offers a plethora of these. I absolutely abhor buying wine at…Read More

Rock City

Written by VanessaK on 25 Jun, 2006

Just north of Salina, outside the small town of Minneapolis, Kansas, is a nature oddity that you won't soon forget. In a field of about 5 acres, you find 200 rocks. Yes, rocks, but these are the size of houses or cars and they are…Read More

Places we could have eaten but didn't!

Written by Casual Tourist on 18 Aug, 2000

We had such a number of choices of where to eat in Salina. Our first thought was the restaurant next to the Outpost, however none of us wanted to have a full, sit-down meal. We did get a kick out of the Tinman…Read More

Rolling Hills Refuge - Cougars

Written by Casual Tourist on 19 Aug, 2000

The Refuge is home to two beautiful cougars. They were quite affectionate with one another while we were viewing them. I certainly wouldn't want to meet one of these cats in the woods unexpectedly, but they were magnificent to watch.…Read More

Rolling Hills Refuge - African Hunting Dogs

Written by Casual Tourist on 06 Aug, 2000

The African Hunting Dogs were extremely obliging the day of our visit. When we arrived at their enclosure they were sleeping, but after a few seconds, both of them woke up, stretched and interacted with one another. After I was able to take several photos,…Read More

Rolling Hills Refuge - Bears

Written by Casual Tourist on 06 Aug, 2000

Bears are another animal I really like seeing. At Rolling Hills Refuge they have both Sloth Bears and Black Bears. Neither pair of bears was very active on the day we went, probably due to the temperature -- a little warm for any animal with…Read More
