A Horned Lark chrips from a guidepost that marks the highest elevation in Kansas. The top of Mount Sunflower (not a mountain at all; barely a hill, in fact) is at 4,039 feet above sea level. The site, protected by a woven wire fence held with tree stump posts, includes metal-crafted signs and sunflowers as well as limestone markers. Mount Sunflower is near Weskan, in far western Kansas less than a mile from the Colorado border. It's in a desolate area served only by unpaved roads and you might think the number of visitors would be minimal. But no! Eighteen pages were needed in the registration notebook, kept in a mailbox, to log the visitors who signed in in May of 2019.
