On the trail
We seem to be following the historic Santa Fe Trail.Today we made it to Dodge City, the classic Western cowboy town. The Boot Hill Museum here turned out to be lots of fun -- we even had a couple of sasparillas at the Long Branch Saloon.
The museum had an incredible array of displays, and was filled with fabulous memorabilia and information. Learning about the slaughter of the buffalo (numbers going from a million to a thousand in under a decade) was horrifying, especially with this being Earth Day.
We're ridin' the trail through Kansas, while the eggs boil up on the little stove, as we start to get ready for Easter.
