On The Road Again – An Oklahoma Art Tour

March 11, 2010

Lamar SunsetColorado Sunset South of Lamar

We’re headed down the road to visit numerous art museums, and other sites, in Oklahoma. Neither of us have been in Oklahoma since we were in our teens traveling with our families on great American road trips following the Mother Road – Route 66.

A combination of human error and good luck got us to Trail West Cafe a block off Main Street in Lamar for a quick dinner. When we heard repeat customers rave about the bread pudding we put in our own order. Caramel Pecan Bread Pudding, $2.49, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for $1 – marvelous!

Images across the eastern Colorado plains included green fields of winter wheat springing from black soil, cottonwoods along stream beds glowing golden in their promise of the coming spring, migrating snow geese circling a lake before settling in for the night, a red-tail hawk drifting on the thermals. Plus a glorious Colorado sunset.
