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

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.

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.

Mount Magazine

Today we had a lovely drive through the hilly western part of Arkansas from Hot Springs to Bentonville. We went on back roads and climbed to a beautiful overlook on Mount Magazine. Who would think 2700 feet would feel high, but I think it is high for Arkansas.

Maurice Bathouse

Marilyn Hilbers
Yesterday we drove from Nashville to Hot Springs Arkansas. It is the first time either of us has been to Arkansas. We went through Memphis and rode down the infamous Beale St, the home of jazz. The Mississippi River there was nicely developed. We saw a place that was part of the Underground Railroad called Slave Haven. Unfortunately it was closed.

Hot Springs is where my great uncle Milton spent most his life. He was associated with the famous Maurice Bathouse.

So, today we walked Bathhouse Row and toured one. Marilyn got in touch with her cousin Gary and spent some time catching up (since childhood).
