red dirt

"Oklahoma" gets a bad rap, just like "Nebraska" and "Kansas" -- notorious for states that are boring to drive through.

I will admit that there is a whole lot of SKY.


But that much sky also gives an opportunity to see things you could never see in the forest.

We grew up driving through these landscapes, playing auto-bingo and becoming very, very good at spotting things in the sea of sameness.

Because in fact, it's never the same.

The features on the vast landscape are all as different as people, you just have to take the time to notice. All somewhat untouched by time, and all the more amazing for it.


And even the sameness gets spruced up for the holidays.


And each town does it in a different way.
