Hi Don,

Ever since I began riding going fast on racey bikes has been one thing I love to do. Often I ride with others who share this passion and we haul ass dogging each other tooth to heal.

However, I also find that there is no finer riding than the type which you and I shared on that trip. Retracing the steps of famous personages through history into remote places.

Yeah I love my new 525 EXC and dancing the single track through the trees but that ride we did was wonderful on another grander and deeper level. When are we going to do another ? We need to pick a date of some historic event and meet on the site it occurred.

What's this I see about you being in WA ?

All the best,

Esteban

That ride with Esteban was awesome, so much history in that tri corner area! And if you like rugged prairie it's some fantastic scenery.

I am amazed at the way the telling of History has changed between the early 1900s and today.

great thread!





How a place so generally featureless can be so strikingly beautiful I do not fully understand.

Casey -- I stared at this pic of the water towers for a long time. When I was a kid, my family would either vacation at The Fort, pass through on the way somewhere else, spring turkey hunt or deer hunt every year. When I was little, my folks always told me I would never get lost by just keeping track of where the water towers were.

Fort Rob and the surrounding area is one of my favorite places.

The pic below is looking north east towards the ridge that Kidder and his men rode over and down towards Beaver creek, they went to ground just below the ridge to the far right where the grove of trees are now, they tried to make a stand here,they were buried here. A war party of about one hundred siuox led by Pawnee killer had chased the troop for about three miles in a runing battle that ended on this hill side above beaver creek in Cheyenne county Kansas, about ten miles north of I-70 and twenty miles south of Bird City.
