Buried deep in the heart of Kansas lays Mushroom Rock, a unique formation of towering eroded stone.
The bottom of the rock is made of softer stone and has been eroded by wind and water, while the top stone is more solid and sits upon it now stone stalk.
The State Park dedicated to these rocks sits at the end of an abandoned dirt road, with only hand painted wooden signs pointing its direction.
The softer stone is covered with carved names and messages of visitors who aid the wind and water in their erosion. Slowly the stone "stalk" crumbles away and eventually it will be nothing more than a boulder on the earth.
Used by native explores as a landmark, Mushroom Rock is steeped in folklore.
We are glad to have seen it in its glory, one day soon it may only nothing but a rock and a story.
