Arkansas River

Today we travelled from Garden City, KS to Salina, Co. Landscape changed dramatically from plains to Rocky Mountains ( in about Pueblo, Co) at about 4000 feet altitude.

we followed the Santa Fe Trail and the Arkansas River. We are amazed that the Arkansas River continues into the Rockies to the Continental Divide.

Madonna of the Trail

We are traveling on US 50 which in Kansas and Colorado is the Santa Fe Trail that Pioneers travelled West. We happened upon The Madonna of the Trail in Lamar, Co. We learned about these statues erected by DAR in the 1920’s dedicated to the women who came west.

Boot Hill Museum, Dodge City, Kansas

Today we drove from Witchita to Garden City, KS stopping at the famous Dodge City - of Wyatt Earp fame. We went to the Boot Hill Museum. It is very well done.

Also the road is the Santa Fe Trail and we crossed the Cimeron Trail.

it is windy here. They explain it as because it is at the 100 th Meridian. Winds come up here and go East from Gulf of California. It is the windiest place in US - not Chicago.

Mercantile in Pawhuska, OK

Marilyn Hilbers
Today we drove from Bentonville, AR, through Oaklahoma to Witchita, KS. We stopped at Pawhuska, OK where the Pioneer Woman is filmed. We enjoyed the bakery and the unusual trinkets at the Merchantile. A nice break from driving.

It is in the Osage Indian area and we also enjoyed the Osage Visitor Center. There were many original Indian crafts.

Another interesting site today was spending some time on Historic Route 66.

We are planning to stop at Bryce and Zion National Parks. We decided today to enter from the north so we are heading a bit North to go to Colorado.

Walton Museum

Marilyn Hilbers
On we went to Bentonville, Arkansas where Sam Walton started Walmart. There is a small museum we enjoyed. We were surprised at how large a town Bentonville is.
