June 3, 2010: Trip to Alma
Ed Bloodsworth, Nate Riggs and I took a trip to Alma, Kansas on June 3, 2010. Here are some photographs I took along the way.
Our first stop was the radar site in Alma, Kansas. This is the radar that covers most of Northeast Kansas. When we arrived at the site, the welcoming was quite unusual.
That's right! Cows welcomed us at the site. The National Weather Service leases a piece of land on a farm for the radar site, so if anything the cows are probably wondering what we are doing there. The following picture shows the cows by the radar, however the top of the radar dome (or radome) is chopped off to keep the bright sun out of the photograph.
A few photographs of the radar...
We thought the cows were pretty neat, so Nate tried to get video of the cows around the radar. They were not camera shy!
We eventually got away from the cows, climbed up the stairs and took a look inside the radome.
After checking out the radar, we stopped in town. Here are few photographs from Downtown Alma.
Before we left, we took a drive on the Native Stone Scenic Byway.
