Last summer I traveled to Wichita, Kansas to attend the National Speech and Debate competition. At first I was not looking forward to the trip to Kansas because I didn't really think that there would be a lot to do in Wichita, boy was I wrong. In the ten days that we were there we found plenty to keep the high school kids and adults entertained with! One of my favorite activities was visiting the Pedestrian Bridge and Keeper of the Plains. The bridge and statue are located along the Arkansas river and are a awe inspiring architectural and artistic sight. The restoration project cost over $20 million dollars and was completed months before my travel there in the early summer of 2007.
