Kaw Point Park, Kansas City, KS. 396'57"N 9436'36"W or so.



Lewis and Clark at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers. The camera is pointed ESE and the monument is about 1.8 miles from that greenish building in the background at 12th and Main in downtown Kansas City, MO. The Kaw comes in from the W on the right. Lewis gestures NE up the Missouri, which flows in from the left and then curves away to the left in the background before doing almost a complete u-turn and heading back to the NE.

Below, a better view of the confluence, with a small amphitheater,



and a historical marker commemorating another tough day at the office



in the upper part of the park near an interpretive pavilion:



Access thru a truckyard via River City Dr, the first right off NB Fairfax Trafficway in KCK.

Bernard Bryan Smyth, in his Heart of the New Kansas," published in 1880, said: "After the abandonment of the fort it became a den of thieves and general rendezvous for bats and marauders. These occupied it day and night by turns -- he former hiding by day, the latter by night." The stone used in the construction of the fort was gradually appropriated by the settlers in the vicinity, and the "bats and marauders" were finally rendered homeless. Nothing remains of the site today, but it is designated with a historical marker located about 1.5 miles east of Great Bend, Kansas on U.S. Highway 56.

Old Julesburg Colorado.

Marker just west of present day Julesburg Colorado, on the site of old Julesburg, that was burned by the Cheyenne, Sioux and Arapaho on Jan 7th 1865 in revenge of Sand Creek, the marker also commemorates the Pony Express Julesburg Station. The tree line in the distance is the South Platte River.

AHEM.

Terrific pic of the bike with the Pony Express rider. I've crossed Kansas on U.S. 36, the Pony Express Highway, but detoured south before coming to Julesburg.
