Our morning started with a fiery sunrise peeking through the trees and proceeded to be a warm sunny day. We found out that Patti Page was born in Claremore, OK and they have named a Blvd. after her. There was an old stone church that now serves as a women's workout center, Curves.

We passed by Tulsa along the Arkansas River and had views of bright red Oklahoma dirt everywhere. There were more Route 66 memorabilia and reminders of Disney's movie, CARS.

As the day warmed, it was nice to see the cattle finding shelter under the trees.

After crossing into Texas, the landscape continued to be red dirt and lovely rolling hills. We decided to stop at the Amarillo Elks Lodge and make use of their RV parking for the night.
