The Santa Fe Trail
US 50 runs along or on top of what has been stage lines, the route for the Pony Express and here in Kansas, it's the Santa Fe Trail. I'm doing an average of 70 mph. I was in Colorado this morning. Tomorrow I will be in Missouri. They did 18 miles a day over what seems to be an endless, hot, windy, and dry sea of grass with no road other than the wagon ruts left by those who went before them. The faith these people must have had. In today's measure, it seems super-human.
