Coming home from Arkansas City I took a detour through Ashton.
Another visit to the abandoned amusement park to photograph and video what I missed previously..
The photos below are from a previous visit earlier in the year.
On a recent bike ride I stopped to check out this abandoned property.
Lake Of The Ozarks Missouri at Bagnell dam. We made a quick detour and stop here on our way home from Columbia, Missouri where we attended the Pedaler’s Jamboree.
I’ve known about these arrows for some time but never thought to look to see if there were any in my area. A friend alerted me to this one which I’ve ridden by many time not knowing it was there. Today I rode out to take a look.
The Transcontinental Airway System began being built in the early 1920s and guided airmail pilots across the U.S. A tower with a beacon and a generator would have set atop the concrete arrow. This was a spur off the transcontinental route that was between Amarillo and Kansas City.
What’s left of the Joyland Amusement Park in Wichita, KS, Fall of 2016. Most everything has been demolished. Previous visits to the park can be seen here.
