Tonight I’m in eastern Oklahoma after a two hundred mile drive from the west side of Oklahoma City. It was an uneventful trip along Interstate 40 with one stop for gas about midway. The three and a half hours on the road went by quickly.
The terrain surprised me. Not to far east of Oklahoma City the open ground became filled with trees. The ranch lands west of the city were gone. Eventually the trees started to give way to farm land and I started to pass fields planted with corn. While I knew there would be a transition from ranching to farming as I moved east, the forested areas were the big surprise.
I am staying in a campground a few miles from the Arkansas River and the Arkansas state boarder. I’ll be here for four nights. There are a few things in the area that should be interesting to visit. The question is will they be open, open with restrictions or closed.
