Dodge City

Yesterday we left from Pagosa Springs, Colorado and drove through the mountains to Lamar, Colorado, yes it's a big state :-) Beautiful ride through the Rocky Mountains, 2 passes over 10.000 feet, great views and smooth roads with hardly any traffic what more do you want?
Today we continued our trip and reached Dodge City, Kansas by lunch time. Wyatt Earp was the marshal here and they erected a nice statue in his honor.

We had lunch at Casey's Cowtown Steakhouse. Casey the owner was very friendly and helpful, the Steaks were absolutely fabulous. We love these independently owned restaurants that have way more character than the chains.

Before we reached our destination for today, Emporia, Kansas, we passed through Mullinville were we ran into M.T. Liggett's Political Sculptures. People who know us, know that we have a weak spot for kitschy stuff like this so we had to take a few pictures before we head on.
