Route 66: Oklahoma

DAY FOUR: We made it as far as Tulsa last night… the landscape has changed from Missouri’s rolling hills to the flat endless horizon we tend to associate with the great big West… And the animal of the day is the cow!

Lots and lots of cows… and lots and lots of corn… Cornfields and Cows… Cows and Cornfields… occasionally interrupted by the tall stalks of the wind turbines generating clean energy… wind farms and traditional farms all in the same place…

The clean energy windmills dotting the landscape made it seem as if the nation is hedging its bets… still believing that oil is king, but solidly investing in alternatives as well…

And so the windmills stood starkly in the flat fields defining the horizon like so many mechanical scarecrows… the cows paid them no mind!
