Dodge City

Faced a nasty headwind across much of Kansas which the Rover did not like at all. Stopped at Dodge City simply because I had never been there before.
Founded on the Santa Fe Trail in 1865, over 3 million bison were slaughtered from the surrounding plains between 1872 & 1875, and an estimated 850,000 hides were shipped out of the future cowtown. Favorite adopted sons, Bat Masterson & Wyatt Earp were both lawmen in Dodge.
Wyatt even has a statue today.
