Sod Buster, LewisNClark, montybones.... Excellent, excellent, excellent.
SB... Have never heard of the murderous Benders. Daaaaang. Recently visited Old Bent's Fort in La Junta, Colorado, which was located on the Santa Fe Trail. What a time.
LNC... Don't get me started on Lewis and Clark! And how about that, a photo of Private Willard! I finally read "Undaunted Courage" by Stephen Ambrose last winter. You know/have seen much more than I. The book has me wanting to ride to St. Louis then follow their route as close as possible, all the way to the Oregon coast.
I don't know if this historical marker/historical sign theme will have any traction. I will have to hunt for them in Colorado and the Rockies, but do know of some I have passed without taking a pic of them. Modern, colorful, interpretive signs are also fair game here. Thanks for the contributions. I think we're like-minded, seeing how one way we can enjoy our bikes is to have them escort us to reflections of the past.
