Several of these metal sculptures on the hill at the entrances to town. Really cool as you are driving into town. Kinda sets the old west mood.

Cool little spot to overlook the highway into Dodge City. Cowboys are silhouetted against the skyline approaching Dodge from the west.

Just a pull out along the highway but the overlook gives you a commanding view of hundreds of acres of cattle feedlots. The smell in not real good if you're downwind.

the over look is east of Dodge City just past the airport. There are signs for the turnoff. The overlook has an information board & a couple of horse shoe sculptures.

Few miles west of Dodge City, this makes a perfect backdrop for a picture. Sadly we were outrunning a storm on our bikes, so just got a quick look as we rode by.

Caught our eye on coming into Dodge City. Enjoy the sign and the overlook. Only take as much time as one wants.

We never saw so many cattle waiting to be slaughtered. Interesting how many feedlots there were in the area.

This was a nice stop along the Highway. But I must say that it you miss the overlook you haven't really missed anything fantastic. It was great to get out and stretch our legs and we did take pictures.

From this lookout, you can see the full breadth of cattle yards where cattle stay for a short period to be fattened up before slaughter (i think the figure is a million head a year). There are literally thousands of them. Depending on wind direction,...More
