A nice statue of a cowboy with deeps roots in a cowtown. It is a good spot for a photo op. The town does a good job of tipping the old cap to its past.

Takes just a few minutes to appreciate this statue. Definately look for it. In addition to the statue you can visit the Visitor Center for more information on the area.

This is more than just a cowboy statue, this is Wyatt Earp. One tough dude in the history of the US. Gun slinging, law abiding and one tough dude. Take a few minutes to read about him as you visit Boot Hill.

I believe this is a statue of famous lawman Wyatt Earp, who was a lawman in Dodge City for a short time. It's worth a stop and a picture.
