|Some of the calcite boulders in Kansas - click to enlarge|
These really are a geological surprise to me. The calcium part of calcite is from seashells and that sort of thing that are at the bottom of the ocean. Kansas is a long way from the ocean these days but
way back you could get a good buy on a beach house.
If you wanted to see such a sight locate the Town of Minneapolis. It's in a triangle with Kansas City and Topeka and not too far from Atchison (Santa Fe is not connected here).
Odd things in this world and most are a mystery to me. If you're ever out roaming around stop and see Rock City.
