Tulsa to Oklahoma

Day 6 – Monday

Heading away from Tulsa, we decided to drive all the way to Oklahoma on the oldest Route 66 roads, reaching Sapulpa first – a quiet, deserted type of high street, but with various retro advertisements to mark the Route 66 heyday…..

Onwards to Rock Creek bridge….

From here to Bristow…there are supposedly more miles of brick streets here than anywhere other city in Oklahoma. And that’s about it.

And the last town before OK is Arcadia, home of the legendary round barn, and Pops, a ‘space-age gas station’!

Other key points of note today were the weather…an amazing peak of 22 degrees! We didn’t think we would need the air con on this trip. And other unique sights…here are my top 3:

    Shame about Tulsa, perhap it was better during the day. St Louis arch looked interesting, a magnificent view from the top.
    B&Q could learn something from the Home Improvement Outlet and the above ground Tornado shelter Wow!
    Good to know it’s warmer now.
    Texas here we come, ride ’em cowboy! x
