Shocking, I know. But Texas has better roads than Arizona and New Mexico (at least the ones I drove on), an awesome state park, and it was the first place where I totally had an accent. :-p Plus it had Cadillac Ranch! Where you can spray paint some old Cadillacs!
Palo Duro State Park: where you can drive around in the Canyon, and there are water crossings! Also, it is only $5, unlike some other uppity canyons I could name.
Texas also seems to be somewhat greener than the proceeding states. Although the lady at the gift shop in Palo Duro said “Oh, where the trees are!” when I told her I was from Oregon.
I also saw a giant cross
and a leaning water tower.
And a museum of barbed wire!
In Oklahoma, I saw the National Route 66 Museum, which was somewhat meh. But had this giant sign!
Also in Oklahoma? Garth Brooks Blvd.
Tomorrow, it’s onto Fort Scott (the closest I’ll get to genealogy on this trip) and hopefully a laundromat somewhere!
