September 10 to 21 Campsite of the 1825 Survey Team

This is the approximate location of the September 10, 1825 Campsite of the Survey Team and the Lower Crossing of the Arkansas River that is in the area. Also in this photo you get a closeup view of the Dodge City Ruts located about one miles west of Howell, Kansas on the north side of US 50, 9 miles west of Dodge City, Kansas. In this photo the turnout and path to a lookout at the top of a ridge can be seen at the bottom center. The ruts in this photo are the light and dark lines running at an angle across the photo from the lower right hand corner to the upper left corner. The marker is located just east of the entrance for the ruts on the north side of U. S. 50.
