My sister, nieces and I enjoyed a day
in the woods, we hunted for arrowheads, found fossils, had a little excitement when we saw a feral hog and 2 little snakes, crawled up muddy creek banks, explored and snapped pictures of God's great outdoors!

Old concrete Cowboy Dipping Vats used to dip cattle in an arsenic solution to stop "Texas Tick Fever"
 Cattle had to be dipped before going across the Kansas border to the cow town railheads

Milky green creek

Row of stone bluffs

A natural throne in the stone bluffs, can't you see an
indian chief from yesteryear sitting here?

Native Americans also made wide use of horsetail for food and medicine. It was also used as a diuretic & to relieve abdominal pain, and boiled it to make cough medicine for horses. .
Indians and pioneers alike ate the young horsetail shoots raw or cooked, like asparagus. They also drank a diuretic tea brewed from horsetail, and made green dyes for lodges and clothing.
The rough silica crystals made dried horsetail a favorite tool for scouring and polishing. Settlers gathered bundles of horsetail and used them to scour floors and polish metal, especially pewter. Some Native Americans still use horsetail to polish ceremonial pipes, as well as bows and arrows. Indian children even made whistles from the hollow horsetail stems -- a use that was echoed by early Europeans.
