DNL Adventures: Eastern Oklahoma Bridges and More Tour Part Deux

Ok...let's try this again. I started this thread once before and managed to somehow nuke it within 5 minutes

Oklahoma winter is sometimes really cold...this year, NOT. So on December 1st with a high temperature of 75 degrees Zekester63 and I decided it would be a good day for our Bridges and More Tour. Only downside was the wind blowing 35 mph from the South. We decided not to let a little breeze deter us.

Our Planned Route.



My DRZ affectionately known as QEII ready to go.



Zekester finally shows up on his newly minted WR known as Roxy.



Our first destination of the day is the birthplace of Oklahoma's most famous citizen.





Next stop was to be the Winganon Bridge over lake Oolagah. But, the a fore mentioned wind threatened to blow us off the bridge into the angry water below, if the Dodge dooly breathing down our necks did run us over. So, we decided discretion was the better part of valor and opted to wait till we crossed the bridge to stop for a picture. We are on dry lake bed where once lake Oolagah had been (before this drought). You can just see the Winganon bridge in the background.



Also made a stop at the abandoned (obviously) Winganon School House.



Our Next destination is one of those places like "Worlds Largest Ball Of Yarn", or "Worlds Largest Prarie Dog" that makes you ask; Why?

Worlds largest cement totem pole





Near Chelsea there remains one of the original Route 66 bridges. If you like old bridges you will like this one.



Don't think it is all that popular with the local raccoon population though.





WARNING: If you are trying to avoid candy and other confectionery treats do not stop here!
