Utah Loop 2013 Day 21 Strasburg to Salina, KS

We are back to boring interstate driving.  It’s OK in the morning but around 10AM the wind starts to blow and I have to constantly correct for the gusts on our starboard side. It is also noise. I have always enjoyed visiting attractions called “Visit the World’s Largest ____”.  You just know it’s going to be a rip-off of some kind. To break up the boredom today, we stopped at the World’s Largest Prairie Dog Zoo.  I paid nearly $10 to get in and there was the sorriest zoo I have ever seen. I am glad I didn’t have to pay for Mavis as she wasn’t so keen on seeing the World’s Largest Prairie Dog. The entire area of the zoo was pitted with prairie dog holes with the odd dog popping up every now and then. The largest prairie dog iwas made of plaster and hidden behind a high fence so the secret would not be given away to drivers on I-70. The barn was good looking  but in sad condition. The aviary section was a cage of pigeons. I can see all of those I want to see in Nashville. There was a coyote sleeping in a cage. I can also see those in our neighborhood at home.  I forgot to look for the 5 legged cow. Leaving after 10 minutes, I was not surprised to see the zoo is for sale.  I didn’t ask about the price. As a public service I am showing my photos of the zoo on this blog and sparing readers from having to travel to Oakley KS to see this "world famous attraction".  Tomorrow we will visit the Eisenhower Library in Abilene and then on to a few miles west of St. Louis. We should be home on Monday or early Tuesday.
