"DAR and Wet/Dry Routes Markers"
This is a side by side example of the markers used by the Daughters of the American Revolution to mark the Santa Fe Trail in 1906 and the markers used by the Wet/Dry Routes Chapter. This location is on the Later Dry Route at a place called Pawnee Fork Crossing on the west side of the Larned State Hospital Grounds. Immediately behind the two markers is a gigantic cutdown leading to the river where the crossing once was. This cutdown is one of the largest along the Santa Fe Trail that can be found.
