On the Road with Tom and Gloria travel blog

beautiful end to a long day

Because of the time change ( Nashville is on Central time) we got up at 6am ( 7am Detroit time) and were on the road by 6:45. We arrived in Elk City Oklahoma at 6pm. Good roads make for an easy drive and 782 miles seemed to go by quickly today.

I titled today's entry " temptations" because we were sooooooo tempted to stop at any number of places along the way -- Loretta Lynn's Compound, St. Jude Hospital compound, the Capitol building in Oklahoma City, The Trail of Tears, etc. We will have to plan to come back to this area - not in December though. The temperature is 65-70 degrees but the trees are bare and the grass is brown. Surely this would be a prettier drive at another time of year.
