Warner Ruts Number One on the Fort Hays Fort Dodge Road

Warner Ruts number one on the Fort Hays/Fort Dodge Road. The ruts in this photo are the light colored line just to the right of the center running north and south. At the northern point of the ruts is a black dot on the photo, this is the marker put up by the Warner's to mark the ruts and the Fort Hays/Fort Dodge Road on their land. The marker is located in the fence line on the south side of the county line road between Hodgeman and Ford Counties next to the Warner marker. From this location if you look to the west in the fence line you can see another marker. This is the original northeast corner marker for the Fort Dodge Military Reservation. The owner, John Warner found the marker almost covered up with dirt and has placed it on a concrete base right where he found it. On the top of the marker is a mark indicating this corner of the reservation. On the sides of the marker there was markings that read US RES. But time and Kansas weather has taken it's toll on this historic marker.
