Where in the world can you…

… scuff your foot into the prairie sod and discover a fossilized shark’s tooth,

whose original owner hunted in a strange primordial sea?

… gaze on an early Indian pueblo, far north of its southwestern cousins?

… follow an ancient road once traveled by buffalo hunters, gold-seekers,

stagecoaches, steam engines, and now SUV’s?

…trace the trails of Buffalo Bill, George Armstrong Custer, Wild Bill Hickok,

Fred Harvey, Calamity Jane, and the Buffalo Soldiers?

Why, only one place in the world!
