Colorful Colorado and beyond…
Just on the eastern edge of Colorado, before you cross the border into Kansas (or just after your leave Kansas, depending on the direction you are driving) is a little town called Burlington.
There isn’t even a Walmart to warrant a stop to refuel with beef jerky and a Dr. Pepper, which is essential to any good road trip. That’s okay. You can save the calories and take a short detour into town to the Kit Carson County Carousel.
For a mere 25¢ you can delight your children, or your kid-at-heart, with a whirl on a menagerie of unique hand carved wooden animals. The museum is only $1. Talk about cheap entertainment. And, if your kids are anything like mine, they will ride that carousel 3 times!
