Grass Fire in OklahomaGrass Fire in OklahomaGrass Fire in Oklahoma

Flames were about 20 feet high!
Just before we reached the Kansas border, we saw huge flames off of I-35 - a grass fire. It looked like the wind was pushing the fire away from local houses. I took a few pictures through the windows. We arrived in Wichita, Kansas at 10 PM Tuesday night. We drove 500 miles through 3 states. Today we head to Loveland, Colorado. We will be stopping in Salina, Kansas this morning to see the house Terry lived in for 2 years when he was 10 - 12 years old. His dad, who passed on May 13, was stationed at Shilling Airforce Base (closed).

I left my AT&T network device at home and I have not been able to post while on the road. Until Tracy mails to Oregon, I will be doing this at the hotel. See you in Colorado.
