One of the last 6 States we had not been to! We drove into Oklahoma from New Mexico and all the way through it to the other side. So , we pretty much saw what most of the State looks like. I liked Oklahoma's farmland. It made me think no matter what happens in this country, at least they are growing enough food and seem to have learned from their mistakes last century. This is not a tourist destination, but to me it would be worth at least one visit, just to see it.
My ( bored from sitting in the truck) son standing in front of miles and miles of wheat fields. I picked one to take home ( doesn't grow in Florida) , but it was growing on the edge of the field in the dirt road.
They grow the wheat and other things like corn in circles. I am pretty sure they do this because of the irrigation equipement. When you look at this area on google earth , you can really see this.
The western part of Oklahoma looks a lot like New Mexico. We attempted to hike up the highpoint, Black Mesa, but it was too hot.
- Pros:Not very crowded , lots of farmland
- Cons:Weather can get very bad!
- In a nutshell:Probably underappreciated, they grow a lot of food there!
We saw more oil rigs and natural gas facilities in Oklahoma than Texas. The photo is from the display at the Oklahoma... more travel advice
If you get uncomfortable if you are not in a city, don't drive through western Oklahoma! There are not many people... more travel advice
