i was very disappointed in the condition of this grave site for a man who had such a profound influence on the history of this state and the west in general seems this site could be cleaner and better taken care of looks as if his head stone has been vandalised it really sadens me, at least a pipe rail has been put around it and was painted and someone should really update the info on left hand colorado says he died at mascare in colorado

Boy Jay you are right. Tired to find the grave site the other day and found no other signs or directions after the faded sign showing left on Canadian/pump Station Rd. Go'na try her again tomorrow and I'll be atrying the directions off this here site.

From Jay on 07/31/11

Agree with James. There was one sign off of Hwy 281 and a really, I mean had to stop and stare, faded sign with an arrow that pointed left onto Canadian/Pump Station Rd. I even asked for directions and never found it. I'm sending a email to ODOT and OKTravel. Will try again with better directions.

From james streator on 06/17/11

The directions are correct. The map is wrong. Suggest you keep the directions and corect or dump the map. Interesting landmark. Go see it.
