Autumn, 2009

To dispel the notion of some people that Oklahoma is desolate and treeless, I present a few autumn foliage photos I snapped right here in Tulsa this afternoon. Here in the eastern portion of Oklahoma, we have trees and even a few hills. And the trees turn colors in the fall, too. These aren't on Route 66, but close. Tomorrow, it's back to 66 and Afton.

Laurel, if you get the time, this is a great time to go drive the Talimena Drive through the Kimechi Mountains.

We did that drive one year at about this time, and happened to hit it when they had thick pea soup fog both days of the weekend. We saw absolutely nothing beyond the hood ornament on the car. I definitely want to go back some day and see what's there.
