East to West, Oklahoma Is Miles 465 Miles Long....

Eric and I are driving 200 - 240 miles a day on our long, leisurely drive back to Upstate New York.  We have one more overnight stop to make before waving goodbye to Oklahoma.

Returning to Interstate 40 East.

The Oklahoma City

We turn north onto

Another large road
construction project

Eric & I continue today's
 drive on US Route 60.

A Refinery

In this state, it's a safe
guess that processes oil.

My childhood comes to life
before my eyes when I see a

US 60 follows the Osage
National Heritage Trail.

Was the fire started purposefully
or the result of an engine fire,
a lit cigarette tossed out of a
car window?

The Cattle are social

Honoring Osage history &
culture in Pawhuska.

Nest stop... Bartlesville

Our first sighting of the
Price Tower in downtown
 Why leave the Interstate to see a skyscraper?  It was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.  Built in 1955 this unique tower opened to the public in February 1956.

Back on US Route 60...

We pass an Airport.

Route 60 is very quiet
this afternoon.

Cattle roam within sight

of an Oil Derrick.

Eric & I are spending the
night at Walmart in Vinita.

We like to park near a grassy edge, when possible.  Open land is a buffer between businesses and helps creates a quiet area in parking lots.
