Photo by Peter Hancock. Castle Rock is a large limestone pillar in Gove County, south of the Quinter exit off of Interstate 70. It is formed out of limestone and chalk deposits some 80 million years ago when western Kansas sat beneath a large inland sea. Part of the spire toppled over in 2001, not long after this photo was taken.
