Sedgwick County Seat, Julesburg, is in the northeastern most part of the state close to Nebraska. The city was incorporated in 1886 but from 1860-1861 was on the Pony Express route from Missouri to California. The towns namesake, Jules Beni, was actually known for stealing horses from the Pikes Peak Express Company and operating the original trading post in the area. The town was originally Fort Sedgwick, the location Kevin Costner was stationed in the movie “Dances with Wolves”. The Indians kicked a lot of ass here in retaliation for the Sand Creek Massacre.Formidable Court HouseEverywhere you turn there is some type of Pony Express statue or icon, and porti potties.Not really sure why it is the “wickedest” city in the west, seemed quiet and friendly to me.I was interested to see a pack of Cormorants on the South Platte river, I guess I thought they were more oceany, just noticed a Heron in the background.I could easily spend all day here picking thru the neat stuff.The best junk stores I have been in to date, I have been looking at these damn canning jars every where I go and was determined to never get one. I did some research and learned Atlas jars were not made after 1965 so it will always be that old, if it has a seam through the lip it was made after 1915, this 1/2 gallon jar has a seam but also air bubbles and deformities, and hint of purple. I have been seeing the quarts priced about $20 and have not seen many 1/2 gallon ones. I gave 16 dollars for something I am never going to buy?The people of Julesburg are great, I had some good conversation and may have entered a verbal contract to buy the only restaurant in town. Since the local cafe was closed I needed to adjust my protocol for cheeseburger selection and at least keep it in the county. I had two choices, Lucy’s and PVH, no one had time to use the whole name “Platte Valley Hotel”, I had to figure that out on my own.I followed the detailed directions (go to the town of Sedgwick and turn left) to find Lucy’s. Of course I seem to have challenges at every corner and because of “technical” difficulties I was not able to get a picture of my cheeseburger deluxe so you will have to imagine a cheeseburger deluxe at this point. I am told Chicken Fried Steak on Thursday is best here.
