September 5 1825 Survey Team Campsite Ford County Kansas

September 5, 1825 Campsite of the Survey Team. This campsite would have been located closer to the Arkansas River. From the field notes of this survey it states; "South bend of the Arkansas river. Here is the first rock bluff seen on the river." There is a rock bluff just to the southwest of the marker location on the river. The river at this location is just out of the photo and about a half mile to the south of the marker on the southwest corner of the intersection in the photo.
