Totem Pole Park in Oklahoma.
This park was great! It was one of my favorite things in OK!
See the turtle at the bottom?
There were all sorts of sculptures around the park including a fun picnic table.
Guarding the road.
I think this was a little gift shop. We were there early in the morning so it wasn’t open. ..if it even still is.
The next stop was the Catoose Blue Whale. This is probably one of the top three iconic things on Route 66!
Little benches and tables near the Blue Whale.
The Blue Whale!
You could actually climb up in the head of the whale. There’s Eric!
In the belly of the beast.
This used to be a popular swimming spot, but it didn’t look like water you’d want to swim in now. There were quite a few turtles swimming there though!
The Oasis Motel.
Thank you, Tulsa!
The Rose Bowl.
The Desert Hills Motel. What a gorgeous sign!
The Cyrus Avery Centennial Plaza. Cyrus Avery is the “Father of Route 66.”
It was quite the lively sculpture.
Old Route 66.
The detail on the sculpture was wonderful.
There was even a grasshopper on the grill of the old Ford.
A 1920’s era bridge.
The Skyliner Motel. These motel signs sure beat Motel 6.
Another sneaky Meramec Caverns sign on a barn.
A rather beat down gas station.
66 sign on the wall of the gas station.
Round Barn in Arcadia, OK.
Inside the round barn. It was kind of trippy looking up at the ceiling.
Right outside of Oklahoma City is a town called El Reno. This is the spot were a giant tornado killed three storm chasers this past tornado season. Eric and I were fans of the show, Storm Chasers, so we were familiar with the men killed. We were only about a mile away so we decided to go pay our respects.
There was already a memorial setup for the storm chasers. We left some of our wedding flowers for the guys.
At least people can have a sense of humor.
No more billboards.
I was worried about running into a tornado while on the trip. We hit some rather bad storms, but thankfully no tornado. Tornado Alley is one place I do not want to live!
Pony Bridge, Route 66.
The Glancy Motor Hotel!
This was a “hip” Route 66 museum. It wasn’t my favorite, because they seemed like they were trying to hard. You don’t have to try hard…you’re Route 66!
Cotton Boll Motel.
I was a creeper and wanted a photo of the herd of cat on this front porch. They were so cute!
India food! We actually went there to find India food. And it was so good! They made it vegan for us too!
Overgrown Route 66.
Harley and Annabelle’s in Erick, OK.
So many fun signs!
Harley and Annabelle’s.
No place like Texola.
There’s no other place like this place anywhere near this place so this must be the place.
My first time in Texas! And I will say that I was kind of upset I didn’t see one cowboy in chaps. Assless or otherwise.
Conoco Gas Station in Shamrock, TX.
Wide angle madness!
