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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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.
