Next Step in my Travels

Needed to keep on my schedule plans, so I headed north from Pflugerville, TX to Wichita, KS. There I found a memorial to the Plains Indians. I am visiting people at Wichita State University (a group known as FirePoint) who supports the U.S. Army. I am working on a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) course for High School students.
