Greetings from Oklahoma!!! The road trip is off to a great start, so I thought I would share just a few of the pics so far! The photo above is right around Payson, Arizona. We are heading up toward the Mogollon Rim.
Northern Arizona has lots of Pine trees and you can smell them in the air.
There are also some great rock formations here in the Southwest.
Just across the New Mexico border there in a very long mountain range the parallels the highway. This photo doesn't do the colors justice at all. They are really a lovely red like the red rocks of Sedona.
There were also some very cool rock formations here. Isn't it it cool how this one is so smooth?
The rest of New Mexico along I40 was pretty barren. (Lack of water will do that to a landscape!!)
When we entered Texas I gave a big ol' mental shout out to all my Texas girls!!
This is what most of the panhandle of Texas looked like. (Plus a few cows)
Have you guys ever heard of Cadillac Ranch?? Back in the 60's the owner of this land buried several Cadillacs nose first in the ground. There are just off the highway and have become a huge tourist attraction. Visitors are encouraged to channel there inner graffiti artist and leave their mark on the "sculptures"
Here I am after leaving my mark! Can you tell what I did? :)
Once we got into Oklahoma the scenery really changed. Everything got much greener!!!
We are on our way now to explore Oklahoma and some beautiful lakes!!!!
