Stacked Rock Fences

It is most rewarding traveling the roads that are not interstate highways. One reward for me was while driving north on highway K-99 about eight miles south of Alma, Kansas. It was interesting to see all of these stacked rock fences beside the highway for several miles.

[Gerald D Massey, 07/10/2012]

Hwy 99 is part of an official state-designated Native Stone Scenic Byway. Beginning in the 1860s, prairie pioneers were paid by the government to take rocks from their fields and stack them into miles of fences.
