Ron & Elena's 2007-2010 Travels travel blog

(Ron Writing) This morning we left Siloam Springs heading west on US-412 across the border into Oklahoma. We’ve never spent much time in Oklahoma on our previous travels so this time we decided to see some of the eastern part of the state.

Near the town of Kansas, OK we headed south on OK-10 which is a scenic route that follows the Illinois River. We drove through forested rolling hills on a very curvy road. The scenery was very nice but the foliage is all off the trees already. This area has a few cattle ranches and many campgrounds and businesses offering kayak and canoe trips on the river.

Near Muskogee, OK we took US-69 south. This is a nice 4-lane divided highway. Near McAlester, OK we headed south on the Indian Nation Turnpike. This is a very limited access 4-lane divided highway that is also marked as a scenic route. We didn’t find it all that scenic – perhaps it would look better in the summer when the leaves are still on the trees. By late afternoon we arrived in Hugo, OK a few miles north of the Texas border. We are parked here for the night at a WMSC.

The weather was perfect – sunny and in the high 70’s.
