92. Arikaree Breaks and Historical Markers

We travelled to the Arikaree Breaks June 24.   We have been calling them the AIR-A-CARE-EE Breaks as we planned this adventure.  When we stopped in St. Francis and asked how to get to them, they were pronounce A-RICK-A-REE Breaks.  I guess we had been pronouncing them wrong all along.  We learned something new on this adventure.

We were excited about an outdoor adventure this weekend and came prepared to spend the day.  We had packed a picnic and Angel's power chair.  Well, the Breaks are fenced off.  So, we were disappointed that we could not get out and hike around and explore.  We had to enjoy the beauty as we drove along.the road .  It is absolutely gorgeous and you should definitely go see the Breaks, but don't expect to get out and hike around the Breaks.  There is no way to adequately explain the Breaks, even the pictures don't do them justice, but it's the best we have.
There are 350 red discs around the county that mark areas of history and geographic sites throughout the county.  There was no way for us to find all of them, but we did manage to find a few.  They are a lot of fun and help you understand the history of the area.  If you live close, maybe you could go on adventure to find all of the red discs.  When you do, let us know about it.
When you see this, you know you are about to enter the Breaks.
