Our purpose in stopping at Ft. Scott was, of course, a visit to the Fort. Staff was talkative, but my camera decided the card was full (it wasn't) and wouldn't let me take more pictures. A small prairie has been established behind Officers' Row, and I had fun IDing the grasses and flowers. At the stables, we talked to an interpreter dressed in summer whites - looked good except for the modern glasses.
Up US-69, now a fancy 4-lane, to Pleasanton, where we grabbed a pizza slice at Casey's and headed back to the Mine Creek Battlefield. My last visit was in October 1989, at the 125th Anniversary reenactment. The entrance was guarded by this cavalryman:
It was hot, so I didn't take much of a walk - just shot this picture of the restored prairie:
A couple of stops or supper and groceries, and we're home about 5 PM. Lots of unloading and putting up, and the trip was over. 258 miles for the day, 2826.7 for the trip.
