Ghost Riders of the Chisholm Trail Silhouette


category : Arts
Ghost Riders of the Chisholm Trail Silhouette The "Ghost Riders of the Chisholm Trail" are life-size cattle drive figures on stoney bluff astride the real Chisholm Trail. The "Ghosts" will forever remind us of the great cattle drives, 1866-1886, when millions of Texas longhorn cattle passed here on their way to legendary railheads, like Caldwell, Kansas. So life-like is the scene, observers are certain they have noticed both dust and sounds coming from the bluff area.


Address: 2 miles South of Caldwell on US Hwy 81
