I had to go to Dodge City, Kansas in early October for a couple days of work-related classes. I had only been through there once before and it was night so I didnít get to see anything. I did a little research and found a few places I thought would be interesting to go see. I took my 450L and spent the Saturday after my classes riding around.

Early Saturday morning, I checked out and started my ride.





I was too early for the museums so I had to settle for outside pics.















This is the Arkansas River. Itís interesting to me being from the Tulsa area, where the Arkansas River is over a quarter mile wide and has water in it.







At the Dodge City airport. My grandsons like airplanes so I sent them this selfie.





A plane and three geese.



Cattle feedlots.









The abandoned veteranís hospital at Fort Dodge.





Coronadoís Cross. Coronado, the Spanish explorer held a Thanksgiving mass here in 1541. The first Christian service west of the Mississippi.





I donít see a lot of cotton fields around here. I picked a ball for my wife.





Looking for an abandoned iron bridge. This is a welcome sign in my book.










And an abandoned railroad bridge going into Ford.









The old railroad depot at Bucklin.

 









Fromme-Birney round barn outside of Mullinville, built in 1912. It was wide-open so I gave myself a private tour.

















Wind turbines. I got chewed out by a little old lady for being on private property. I was about ten feet off the road.  Rolleyes



Metal art at Mullinville. The artwork extended for well over a quarter mile.







Sandy roads along the Arkansas River. I probably rode 10+ miles of this and didnít see a soul. This is my kind of riding.













Did you know that Kinsley is the midpoint of the USA? I didnít either.



This locomotive and old church were at Kinsley too.





Abandoned grain elevators at Ardell. I wish I wouldíve had more time. I wouldíve gone in.









The cemetery, crucifixion statue, and this beautiful church at Windhorst.  Once again, I gave myself a private tour.























And lastly before returning to Dodge City, a couple old locomotives at a grain elevator in Offerle.




The ride ended up being 175 miles and a lot of fun.

On the way home, I passed through the Gypsum Hills.

It's not the fall that hurts, it's when you hit the ground.
