Part 1 of my walking tour of Hays was about the wild west and the history of Hays. http://Nature Walks – A Walking Tour of Hays – Part I Part 2 features the general everyday life in Hays. Hays, KS is middle America to the core. It is a small mid-western town in North Central Kansas, which is dead smack in the middle of the country. The main industries in Hays and the surrounding areas are farming and agriculture, oil and Fort Hays College. Life in general is pretty quiet and pretty simple, and often times a bit quirky.
Many of the streets are still paved in brick. A lot of the buildings and homes are made of limestone.
There were so many pretty, colorful flowers in bloom.
People seem to enjoy life and enjoy living life a little differently than others and most definitely living life on their own terms.
Even the squirrels seem happy and carefree. This big red-tailed squirrel was having so much fun just posing for me. He made sure I got him at all his best angles.
Life is short. Enjoy the ride, no matter where it takes you.
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
