“Highest point in Kansas.”
Mount Sunflower is the highest natural point in the state of Kansas. At 4,039 feet (1,231 m), it is 3,300 feet (1,010 m) above the state's topographic low point in southeastern Kansas. Located in Wallace County, it is less than half a mile (0.8 km) from the Colorado state border and close to the lowest point in Colorado. Mount Sunflower is located on private land owned by Mike and Rae Marie Jones, who encourage visitors to the site. Amenities include a picnic table, a sunflower sculpture made from railroad spikes, and a plaque that states "nothing happened here in 1897." Access is via county dirt roads to the edge of the property, then across a cattle guard and onto a private dirt road through a cattle grazing pasture to the summit.
This was no mountain. It doesn't even really feel like a hill - the land goes up so gradually it isn't distinguishable. I'm glad I saw it to say I saw it, but it wasn't really worth going out of the way for.
