. Outside of Dodge City was an area to stop to look at tracks left over from the Sante Fe Trail. When we stopped, the radiator overflowed. Something malfunctioned, but it still ran so we continued on. Again, I'll have to borrow Uncle Bill's pictures. You can see a couple of wide depressions crossing over the area. We crossed into Rocky Mountain Time Zone just before getting into Colorado, even though my cell phone didn't recognize it until we were well into Colorado. We came under some clouds and could see in the distance lightening and rain. The wind kicked up so much, I thought that there may have been a tornado nearby. The news didn't say anything about it though that night. As we got to Colorado, the terrain began to become a little bit hillier and a lot drier. It rained when we got to La Jousta, CO. It was heavy, big, cold, and wind driven. It was a while before the wind finally died down. It cooled off from the 90s to low 80s / high 70s. Now we have internet access, so after this entry, it happened the day it was written :). Until tomorrow (which is written now today).
Today, we ate breakfast at the Senior Center in Windom. We got to share our experiences with the locals. It was cool to see the town getting together for Spring Clean up. A family with kids were at the park painting the playground equipment. Others were taking stuff over to the dump. Others took stuff to a burning pile. It was real interesting seeing people take part in their community. We headed to Dodge City to check out the museum there. My camera batteries were low, so I wasn't able to take pictures, but Uncle Bill did. I'll have to get them from him later. Behind the museum was a cemetery on Boot Hill where those killed in fights in the city were buried. The bodies were moved to a cemetry elsewhere in town, but there was the possibility that some where still buried on the hill. Unfortunatly, the hill is now covered with homes and businesses. We walked through a mock of what Dodge City looked like in the olden days. There was a demonstration of a shoot out. After that, we headed for Colorado
