Chris is our tour guide today. He starts by showing us the spikes along the top rail of the stairwell leading to Pendleton's Underground. In days gone by, cowboys would come to town for their monthly day off, which usually included a bath, change of duds and partying til the wee hours of the next day, when it was time to head back to work on the ranch. In hopes of impressing the young lovelies hanging out the upstairs windows, cowboys would often demonstrate their riding prowess by 'riding' the railing. After it was destroyed by overly-enthusiastic cowboys more often than anyone managed to count, the owner of the building had these spikes added to the top railing. Voila, problem solved!
