Geographic Center of the USA

The landmark, near Lebanon, KS, was erected in 1940, before Alaska and Hawaii became states. The centre is now in south-west South Dakota but the USGS stopped computing centre points a long time ago as it's much more subjective than you might imagine — in particular, it depends very much on which map projection you use, especially with Alaska being so far north. The actual point computed in 1940 was in the middle of a pig farm a little way from here but the farmer didn't want a bunch of tourists mingling with his pigs.

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, CO

The Gunnison River has spent the last ten to fifteen million years carving a 2,000ft-deep canyon through the rock at about a quarter-inch a century. “Black” refers to the shadows at the bottom of the canyon, rather than the colour of the rock. Erosion has now mostly stopped because several dams have been built upstream, which very much reduces the flow from the spring snow-melt, to the extent that trees can now grow at the bottom of the canyon without being swept away.

Four Corners, AZ/CO/NM/UT

The only place in the USA where four states meet at a single point. The marker is legally defined to be the point where the states meet and the boundaries of the states are legally defined to be the 37th parallel and the 107th meridian. It turns out that the marker is about a third of a mile too far east, creating a contradiction. I guess the last three shots go some way towards explaining why nobody's fighting too hard for the borders to be corrected...

Aztec Ruins National Monument, NM

... which has nothing to do with the Aztecs, though they are undoubtedly ruins and are located in the town of Aztec, NM. Lots of places round here were named in the mistaken belief that the Aztecs lived this far north — they were about 1,500 miles away.

Bent's Old Fort, La Junta, CO

The fort is a modern reconstruction of an 1830s fort that mostly served as a trading post on the Santa Fe trail. The original crumbled to the ground but, thankfully, a military surveyor had spent a couple of months recuperating there and drew very detailed plans of the place to pass the time. The fort was owned by a chap called William Bent who had a great reputation for fairness with the native Americans, though “fair” should be understood in the sense of “true to his word” rather than in the modern “Fair Trade” sense — he'd buy tanned buffalo hides from the Cheyenne and Arapaho for a quarter each and sell them to traders for three to six dollars...

Amache internment camp

They still use the euphemistic phrase “relocation center” for this place where 7,300 people of Japanese descent, nearly two-thirds of them U.S. citizens, were “evacuated” for the duration of World War II. One leaflet I read described them as “virtual prisoners,” as if being placed against one's will in a camp with barbed wire fences and guard towers and not being allowed to leave somehow differs from the regular kind of prisoner.

Dodge City, KS

The first shot is actually in Sublette. Somehow, we took a wrong turn out of Garden City and didn't notice that we were heading south instead of east until we were literally half way to Oklahoma. This added 70% to the distance of that segment: an extra thirty-five miles through boring wheat fields.

Not to be confused with Minneapolis, Minnesota. The large round boulders resulted from calcite precipitating in sandstone, producing a much harder rock that remained behind when the surrounding sandstone eroded away.

They're widening the interstate to three lanes in each direction between Lincoln and Omaha, which means you get roadworks for 20 of the 45 miles of I-80.

We went to the Durham Museum in the former Union Station to see the exhibition of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs. I couldn't take photos in there for the obvious copyright reasons but here are a couple from the rest of the museum.

Storm

While we were eating dinner, a big storm system came across Omaha and the tornado sirens went off to warn of straight-line winds of over 75mph, though there were no tornadoes. It did bring brief but heavy rain and brought down a lot of tree branches.

The cats have fleas so needed to be washed with flea shampoo. Kita and Chris braved the flying claws and teeth and I made sure the bedraggled mogs weren't freaking out too much afterwards. Somehow, Comet still manages to be handsome.
