Let us leave the Fort and go to Leavenworth proper. Above, you can see that Leavenworth is the first city of Kansas. Below, the bridge that gets us across the Missouri River.
Here we are in Riverfront Park where Lewis and Clark traveled so many years ago.
Information about Leavenworth.
Under the bridge.
L. looking for something to eat.
E. looking cute. I learned how to put children in car seats on this trip.
We’ve seen the old DB (disciplinary barracks) on post and I’ve seen the new DB. But what about Leavenworth Prison? Here it is! Looking quite nice with a silver dome on top.
Just to be clear, the one on post is the Army prison, this one in the town of Leavenworth is the Federal prison.
We stopped at park and I went on my very first geocache. Here is our find.
Searching through our treasure.
The bushes we had to go through to get to the geocache.
Back at home we (meaning not me, but I watched) made frozen jello pops. They have jello in the bottom, and sprite on the top.
The girls cooking.
