and then OK County Road 215 north.
That's more like it. Not much to see out here, but it's unexplored territory for me and Red. A couple white tailed deer cleared the 5-strand barbed wire to my right with grace, bounded across the narrow road in front of me, and floated over the fence on my left, reminding me that I was not alone. That's entertainment.
The rows of old trees along the plowed fields are the remains of "shelter belts" that were planted by the U.S. Forest Service in the 1930's in response to the devastating droughts that helped create the Dust Bowl. Sadly, we are that dry again today in this area.
I had to circle back and photograph this sign, as it is a "sign". With a little luck, we will visit Humphreys Peak, AZ in the not too distant future.
I joined OK SH 5 north which doglegged west at Tipton. Rather than following it north again as it joins US 283, I dropped a mile or so south and then west on County Road 175.
Not much to see in Elmer, OK.
Unless you find this an odd combination.
