Dodging the Roadkill: Saltgrass Steakhouse

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I traveled to Colorado recently and after a couple of hard days of riding, I was yearning for a good steak.  The Saltgrass Steak House was just down the road from where I was staying, so I had to give it a try. 

They refer to themselves as “the original Texas Steakhouse” and after slicing into my rib-eye, I could understand. 

Their story dates back to the 1800’s, according to their website, when millions of Longhorns roamed freely throughout Texas.  With the taste for beef becoming a newfound favorite in the North, Texas ranchers prospered as never before.

A look back at the history of Memorial Day

 

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

U.S. Department of Veterans AffairsWashington, D.C. – On May 5th, 1868, three years after the Civil War ended, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Major General John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30th.

It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.

The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
