Day 6, Mile 175 to 216

Day 6, 3 June, 41 miles (67 km) final elevation 4000 ft, the day Bill Joe McAlester jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge. Ordway to B Old Fort National Historic Site. Cool rebuild of the farthest west outpost of its kind in the mid 1850's. Weather was looking nasty so it was back to La Junta for a cheap motel for the night. Time to start camping before my budget is permanently damaged.
