Gee... it all looks the same!
It sure is a different kind of beauty though.

It is beautiful and different, but after a few hundred miles of it you'd be begging for twisties and elevation change! I know I was..

I grew up South of Dodge City along the Cimarron River, so much of this territory is familiar, but this book brought it to life once again. If you have an interest in the southern Great Plains, check this book out if you have not as of yet.
Bought the book several years ago, recommended it several people. Good read for anyone, especially if you live in the southern plains. Llano Estacado area has a lot of history. Most travelers won't even get off the highway coming thru the area (Main roads are flat and boring- 2 lane FM and back roads have some interesting areas.)

Anyone interested in what farming brought to the plains should watch the Ken Burns Video "The Dust Bowl". It may still be on Netflix. My Grandmother always described it to us but seeing old clips on this video is amazing. As a kid in the mid 60's we still had more dust storms than now. Cars with sand blasted chrome, frosted, etched glass windows--i guess the new name for these is Haboob, several Lubbock, TX and other areas have youtube videos on them. Its still amazing to stand outside with not a breeze blowing and watch them come in.

Yes, I'll have to remember that road as the seasons change.
Good idea!

What road is that?

We had a road east of Tulsa that was lined both sides with a beautiful canopy of pecan trees for about a quarter mile. A couple years ago, they completely cleared one side and planted soybeans.

That road is CR1065 on the sign, it's N. 3065 rd. on Google maps.
It's SE Of Caldwell between Osage rd. and the KS border.
Not very far from the OK Tat in that area.
A little desolate, but like a lot of roads, sooner or later ya find purtyness!
