There is no Bow City. There once was, for about two years about one hundred years ago. It is supposed to be near the site where I took this photo.
There was coal mining at Bow City however the operation never amounted to much. I thought there might have been a sign marking where the town once was. There is nothing except empty prairie. I read that there are foundations of where the town had been. Bow City is also the site of a recent geological discovery. Apparently there is an large ancient crater from a meteor strike. I had no idea where to look for that either. I had done a little research but what you read about a site and when you actually get there can often be very different. On the plus side, it was a nice warm day.
