We spent a day driving through Oklahoma, this water tower was neat to see. I spend a good portion of the beginning of the 90’s listening to Country music and admiring Garth Brooks’ music.
Passing through Oklahoma City, I was reminded of the tragedy of the Oklahoma City bombing that happened twenty years ago. I was a teenager at the time but can still remember how shocking it was to hear of such a senseless act
This architectural piece spanned the length of an overpass. Seeing it in person is quite breathtaking as it is very large and reaches high into the sky.
Although it was an overcast day in the Sooner State, it was a beautiful drive.
Arkansas was next on our map. The rivers and lakes became more frequent, each was very still and a picture of the sky was painted on the surface.
The lush green vegetation was beautiful, but also rendered the air quite humid. As night began to fall, the quiet air came alive with the serenade of crickets in the bushes.
The next morning we rolled into Tennessee, my favorite state, greeted by Memphis and the Bass Pro Shop pyramid.
The kudzu grows wildly on the sides of the interstate, Edward Scissor Hands has nothing on Mother Nature! The sculpture of vivid green foliage on dead tree trunks is breathtaking.
I told my husband I would love a yard bordered by this stuff, but he says it would overtake everything, so I suppose I will just admire it from its home in Tennessee.
As we pulled out of a Love’s, we spotted this little barbecue shack. Unfortunately for us, we’d already eaten lunch so we decided next time we travel through here, we will pick up some real Tennessee barbecue.
One of the best parts about life on the road is some of the cool things we seen traveling on the Interstate. I love classic cars and have a lot of respect for those that restore them.
I really hope one day we have the opportunity to stay in Memphis and Nashville to really see the culture of this state. My dad is a huge Blues fan so I’d love to take him along!
