Wet/Dry Routes Markers

With their indepth research of the Santa Fe Trail, the Wet/Dry Routes Chapter felt some sites and trails needed more information. With this in mind the Chapter has placed in prominent locations along the Santa Fe Trail, "Interpretive Markers" to do just that. On these pages you will find a photo of the markers and the text placed on them.

THE CACHES

At this point were the Caches, so called for the pits dug by the Baird/Chambers party to store trade goods in 1823. Here, the Dry Route of the Santa Fe Trail merged with the Wet Route. At a later date, the Dry Route merged with the Wet Route one mile east of Fort Dodge.
