Oklahoma to Texas

Day 4 | Sept 22

Left at 7:00Am to miss Oklahoma city rush hour. Fascinating landscape in West Oklahoma, fields of iron rich red soil.

Another interesting fact is all the black Angus cows everywhere, Oklahoma is the 2nd biggest producer of Angus Beef and yes steaks are cheap here.
Coming into Texas we were amazed by the amount of turbines filling up farmers field. Wind power in Texas consists of many wind farms with a total installed nameplate capacity of 21,044 MW from over 40 different projects. Texas produces the most wind power of any U.S. State. Wind power accounted for 12.63% of the electricity generated in Texas in the 12 months ending Oct 2016.(Wikipedia)

Arrived at Oasis RV Park at 3:30PM. This area of Texas is very windy, we were afraid our door would come off when open, but we settled in and it felt great to be in a nice park.

Day 5 | Sept 23

Although Oasis park was nice after the heat we experienced we wanted to be able to swim in a pool and the outdoor pools were closed at most parks except for Fort Amarillo which is an indoor pool so we decided to stay for two weeks until we leave for the Albuquerque Balloon festival. Arrived at noon and got settled in for a much deserve break.
