Keeper of the Plains in Wichita

This weekend I had an opportunity to be at the Keeper of the Plains in Wichita. Every night they light these amazing fire pots.

I am embarrassed to admit that I have never been there before. Yes, I know, it's awful, but I hadn't. However, now that I've been once, I'll definitely be back.

It was a great experience, made all the better by walking around there with a friend and enjoying the fire pots, the cool rocks, (yes! rocks!) and the statue. This is a very important, sacred site, and I will stop and appreciate that much more on subsequent visits when there are fewer people around.

I am guessing I've probably been in the neighborhood of it when they would have been lighting the fire pots at least a hundred times - probably more - and have never been. Shame on me.

Forgive me Wichita. I didn't know it was that cool. But now I do. And I'll be back.

Don't make the same foolish mistake I made. Go!
