I was enchanted by the drive home across south central Kansas. I was struck by the stark (astoundingly empty) beauty of the place.

The biggest attraction in Riverton KS is the old Eisler Brother Store, built in 1925.  A one-of-a-kind landmark, the store was originally a Standard Station. By 1932, a "Y Not Eat Barbecue” had been added. The Eisler family bought the location in 1973 and opened a market and deli. The old building is well maintained and still contains the original pressed tin ceiling. Enjoy an old-fashioned deli sandwich while watching the  Mother Road travelers by the store’s front porch.

The short ribbon of the Mother Road through Kansas is the shortest of any state at just miles.
