Shopping at Wolfe's Cameras - Exploring Wabaunsee County

On Saturday Feb 21, 2008, I had a fun afternoon shopping and exploring.

I headed to downtown Topeka, to make my first trip to Wolfe's Cameras , and it most certainly will not be my last. I had been looking for a good tripod for sometime to replace one that was stolen a few years ago.

I looked at Wolfe's online store to get some ideas. When I got to the store, I found a great selection of tripods. The sales person spent 15-20 minutes working with me, and I finally decided on a Manfrotto leg assembly, Promaster 3 way head, and Promaster bag to carry it in. I was very pleased with the whole experience and was truly amazed at the variety of photo, computer, and camcorder equipment along with photo finishing, frames, and more in this store.

Wolfe's has been in the retail photo business since 1947.

I left Topeka on K-4 heading southwest thru Dover and stopped at the Echo Cliff area. It appears as though the pony truss bridge over Mission Creek will not be there much longer as the concrete bridge is almost finished. The cliff was illuminated in the late afternoon sun.

From Echo Cliff, I headed west and south passing thru the Nehring Creek valley, then south thru Hessdale and ending up at the Lake Wabaunsee area just as the sun was setting. I headed south on K-99 for dinner in Emporia at La Hacienda, one of my favorite Mexican Restaurants. They serve great Tacos de Carne Asada.

Finally, I drove back to Wichita on the Kansas Turnpike. Driving thru the Flint Hills at night is always an enjoyable experience.
