Special to the Globe
The Howell Rut Site that welcomes visitors to see the Santa Fe Trail tracks is located west of Howell on Highway 50.

For the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail the Dodge City/Fort Dodge/Cimarron chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association is spotlighting sites along the trail in Ford and Gray Counties.

This week we are highlighting the sign at the Howell Rut Site that welcomes visitors to see the Santa Fe Trail tracks. The gray bridges on the walkway cross the ruts of the trail. The rut site is located west of Howell on Highway 50.

Visit www.santafetrail.org and www.santafetrail200.org for information about the trail.

Also information about the Santa Fe Trail can be found on Facebook. For local information contact Bill Bunyan in Dodge City at 620-227-8203 and Deb Calhoun in Cimarron at 620-339-9616.
