Here is one of those places we all know about and for me, never really thought of making a point of going to see, unlike Billy the Kid's grave (if you've been following my blog during the Texas trip you know what I mean). In fact, it wasn't even thought of before the trip. But I found ourselves in the neighborhood, saw it on the map, and took advantage of the opportunity.
Pretty cool! Try as I might, standing there looking all around the golden grass covered hills, it was really difficult to visualize what took place here 135 years ago.
The visitor center was excellent filled with a lot of artifacts found at the site, a wealth of information about participants on both sides of the battle and a ton-load of books to choose from to buy. Way too many for me to consider so I just walked away with the brochure the Park Service handed out.
