Dodge City, Kansas

The Husband and I left Denver Monday morning and headed toward Dodge City, Kansas. We avoided the interstate and took the back roads. It was a lovely, lonely drive.

We arrived in Dodge City and I immediately put The Husband in jail:
I did relent and have him released so we could go to dinner. We ate a Casey's Cowtown Club. The service and the food were quite good. Afterwards, we went back to the hotel for the night.

Tuesday morning, Wyatt Earp was working the front desk at the Best Western. He was very polite and quite efficient during our check out process. He is also in charge of quality control for the free, hot breakfast. It is comforting to know that if Wyatt won't eat it, it is not served to the hotel guests!

We stopped at the Boot Hill Museum before "getting out of Dodge!"

Almost immediately, The Husband put me in jail.
This jail is very old:
We then toured the Boot Hill Cemetery. We like cemeteries. What can I say?
Cemeteries tell the story of our nation. Point in fact, did you know that women who worked in saloons were called "soiled doves?"

After the cemetery, we headed to the Longbranch Saloon. Unfortunately, Miss Kitty was not on duty.
The museum has lots of great artifacts in their collection. If you are ever in the neighborhood of Dodge City, Kansas it is worth stopping for an hour or two.

We left Dodge City on Tuesday morning. You won't believe what we saw on our drive from there to Tulsa, OK. Check back on Sunday to "read all about it!"
