Girls' Day 2018 - Coronado Heights
After lunch on our Girls' Day we ventured a few miles north of Lindsborg to see Coronado Heights. Francisco Coronado gave up his absurdly long quest to find a city of gold somewhere near here. Chain mail and other bots of Spanish armor have been found in the area. In the 1920's a tall hill was re-named Coronado Heights by locals and in 1935 the Works Progress Administration workers built a castle shaped shelter there out of area sandstone.
The castle is fun to explore and the views from the top are amazing, if very windy!
