Bernice leaves the birthplace of Russell Stover
Since leaving judging the chili cook-off and treating Honor to new shoes in Red Cloud, Nebraska, Bernice has spent one night each in Gaylord, Smith Center, and Lebanon, Kansas.
Bernice has now made it through Alton, Kansas, which is just off of Highway 24 in north-central Kansas. Like many small towns that she has passed through, Bernice found unbelievable curiosity, hospitality and support from all that she encountered.
These pictures were taken by Deanna Roach, a part-time rancher and freelance reporter living in Alton. Like many others, Deanna was touched and inspired by the spirit shown by Bernice, Honor and Claire. Read Deanna's article for The Osborne County Farmer on Bernice's web pages.
