Beautiful wheat, cornsoybean fields of Reno and Rice county to beautiful rolling hills of Ellsworth, Saline and McPherson Counties. Great trip, weather providing, all year round. In the summer you might take plenty of water just in case and remember to enjoy all the beauty GOD has put out there for you to enjoy!

All roads are real nice blacktop - A nice combination of long straight stretches of flat road to hilly with lots of nice curves.
