Interestingly for my "ocean front property" Lex Luther-like scheme, I am on the low end of the state. It's about 900 feet here. The elevation doesn't change much from here to Salina, 2 1/2 hours away- it's about 1,200 feet out there. From Salina, though, you pass through the Smoky Hills and you begin the steady ascent to the crest just east of Denver in Genoa, CO (which is around 5,600 feet), then you coast down to the Front Range cities and head into the Rockies.
I make it sound like it's two hours away, don't I?
