Explored the area around the Osawatomie State Hospital (originally known as the Kansas Insane Asylum), located near Osawatomie, Kansas. The grounds are still beautiful, but you can see that they once were grand, and are now falling into disrepair. And yes, I was just visiting!

A ride report covering land around Paola, Osawatomie, Somerset, Block, Fontana, and New Lancaster. I really do enjoy riding in this area. It offers a nice mix of terrain, and some interesting historical sites.

This ride was an opportunity to explore some country largely new to me. I parked in Ottawa and rode south through Greeley and Garnett. I really enjoyed this terrain, especially the section between Ottawa and Greeley, which was very rugged, with many dirt roads.
