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.

JUNCTION OF THE WET AND
DRY ROUTES OF THE
SANTA FE TRAIL

By the 1840's, the Santa Fe Trail's Wet and Dry Routes merged at this point. Previously, the routes had merged at the Caches, ten miles to the west. For a brief period, the Caches and this site served simultaneously as the junction of the routes: but by the 1850's, this location had superseded the Caches as the junction of the Wet and Dry Routes.
