The Chalk Formations At Kansas’s Monument Rocks Look Like Something From Another Planet

Kansas is full of surprises, from Arikaree Breaks to the Gypsum Hills. We love our amazing natural landscapes, and Monument Rocks is no different. These chalk formations are from a years-ago inland sea, but today they look like another place entirely separate from Kansas. Have you seen these in person yet?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

To keep an eye on any closings, unstable road conditions, and the official rule list, check out the official Monument Rocks Facebook page updated every time there’s changes.
