November 24, 2012 – Travel to Oklahoma

We left the Moose early this morning – we are now in Central Time but our bodies are on Eastern Time. 

Continuing our travels on I-40 West – we are now in the area of the country where we can see miles ahead:

Did you notice the cow to the left of the bus – maybe she is waiting for the hay to fall? – :-)

And so many rivers and lakes:

This is west of Oklahoma City – check out the direction the trees grow.  Hmmm…seems like the wind must blow this way all the time…

We made our way to Elk City, Oklahoma, City Park – free, electric, and water available – can’t beat that.  And we will be here for two nights – need to take a driving break and this is a great place to do it.  I promise pictures tomorrow.
