Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer is our host for Outdoor Wednesday. Please check out her blog for more outdoor shots.
Instead of showing more snow pictures, I think I will show you an outing my granddaughters and my husband I took a few summers ago.
THE SANTA FE TRAIL
If you remember studying the Santa Fe Trail, it goes right through a part of our city. It started in 1821 in Franklin Missouri, a trader wanted to catch wild horses and trap fur and trade with Indians. He traveled to Santa Fe New Mexico and after that thousands of wagon trains headed out west. Finally reaching California later on.
A few years ago a sculptor, Charles Groslin sculpted this wagon train along with the various statues to depict the journey. His grandmother was one of the travelers, he has depicted her walking along side the wagon holding his mother.
The day we were visiting he just happened to stop by and took a picture by our grandchildren. We were delighted to meet him.
