Traveling day #3 started out with FOG. In fact it was so foggy that I was down to 35mph on the Interstate! But then a faint glow appeared – the sun broke through and produced an unbelievable light show. Wow!
But what was a rather cool beginning turned into a very hot day behind the wheel.
A little bit of wind from the South, that was it.
We left Texas and rolled into Oklahoma. When I think of Oklahoma the song about “The everlasting hills of Oklahoma” comes to mind.
EVERLASTING HILLS OF OKLAHOMA Writer Tim Spencer
It was performed by “The Sons of the Pioneers” and I sure like to listen to it.
But of course, we couldn’t stay in Oklahoma. We had to roll on. Oklahoma City was quite a view. Not much of a cattle-town image left there, no Sir! Rather I’d say OIL BOOM TOWN.
We sashayed through there on a Sunday morning, so it wasn’t too bad. Of course there always a few of those I call: Big City Cowboys, who seem to be in constant hurry an take every possible chance in traffic. At least they do annoy me quite a bit.
But then it all came down to a slower pace. Oklahoma is sure beautiful in spring. First when we see all this fresh green, we realize that we would not be able to live in the desert year-round.
ARKANSAS - the natural State
The State deserves this State motto for sure. It is such an experience to see all this stunning landscape. Light green fields wrapped in dark forests, neat farms with white fences, and it seems so clean.
For both of us Arkansas was a first timer today. Finally we can fill in another State in that map way down below here. And talk about beautiful rest areas too. Ours is far away from the noise of the I-40 on a plateau having the most fantastic view for many miles. Tomorrow it’s Little Rock, Memphis,
TN and beyond.
But when the heat pairs up with a higher humidity it is taking a toll on both of us. Not used to that anymore, no!
So, and with that I must say I’m taking a time-out in the shade of the rig before the sun goes down.
Thanks for stopping by!
