Made a little pit stop off Route 66 into Cheyenne, OK to visit the Washita Battlefield.  Wasn't sure what to expect at first but definitely learned a lot, despite no real markings in the actual battlefield.  It's actually all overgrown with the natural vegetation of the area.  However, walking through it definitely made us think of what it was like to live in this type of environmnent as well as having to fight in it.  Shayna and I had enough trouble just walking on the dirt path.  When I walked into the field, it was definitely hard to gauge how level the ground was.  Because of that, we were left in awe of both the Indians and the soldiers of the time, being able to live on this land as well as fight in it.
