Riders recreating cattle trail stop in Grant PDF Print E-mail

 

 

Trail riders who are recreating the Great Western Cattle Trail made a stop to visit friends Chuck and Bobi Brown whose residence is a historic building on Grant’s main street. Team driver David Pabst of Colby, Kan., and rider Ken Kleinsorge of Greeley, Colo., have been friends since high school in Colby. The friends spend approximately one week on the road in a covered wagon drawn by a pair of horses. They started in St. Francis, Kan. in 2011, travel about 100 miles each year, and pick up where they left off the year before, with the goal of eventually finishing in Canada. The goal for this year’s trip was Haythorn Ranch near Ogallala, but snow and cold weather ended the trip early, at the Spangler residence about six miles from Ogallala. (Courtesy photo)
