For centuries now, native Kansans have endured the unflattering snubs about their home state: flat, boring, nothing to see or do. No, there are no mountains in Kansas, but wind and water have shaped their own peaks. Nor is there a crashing coastal surf, but you’ll find shimmering waves of wheat, majestic swells of prairie, even remnants of an ancient sea. But to see the real beauty, you must venture beyond the margins of the yellow stripes and orange cones of interstate 70. So join us on a journey that crosses 424 miles of the Sunflower state.
Narrated by Kansas native Melissa Etheridge. Musical score by local musicians. And seen through the crystal clear eyes of high definition. KC to Kanorado casts an uncommon view down a much-maligned stretch of highway—and encourages those, who next make the trek, to slow down and see the state anew.
