Beauty & the Beast…

Today started out like a beast… it took us 3 hours to go about 30 miles just outside of El Reno, Oklahoma. We spent 2 hours at a complete standstill. But on the bright side we had a beautiful ending to the day as we arrived in Albuquerque, NM. Tomorrow morning we head on to Vegas to see my mom!

Day 3 Road Trip- May 22, 2008


Entering Oklahoma! Oklahoma was not my favorite state. We had cross winds that reached gusts of 50+ mph. We didn’t drive as far today as we would have liked. We only made it 265 miles. We spent the night in Clinton OK and we had tornado warnings all around us. The motel clerk was real nice and flagged us down and told us to move the motorcycle under the check in canopy so it wouldn’t get damaged by hail.

Oklahoma City, OK- It was kind of an eerie feeling driving through OK City. I thought a lot about the 1995 bombing of the federal building and all the people who died there. As a photo journalist the image of the fire fighter holding the baby still haunts me. I said a silent little prayer as we passed by.
