Here we are on the road again. This trip is somewhat of a "forced journey" The reason - Storm's all inclusive warranty (think of it as health insurance for a motor home) will expire on March 15th. This is cricital why???? With all the different systems on a coach, there is always something to act a little goofy, or just outright break-down! Thus our current trip!

We left OKC yesterday afternoon and headed west. Our first stop, as on all western trips, was the Cherokee Trading Post just west of El Reno on I-40. Most of us Oklahomans typically pass on by these "touristy" stops, but this one is really fun to walk around. They have some very impressive Native American works, as well as some really lame wares that were made somewhere overseas.

Our overnight spot was at Roman Nose State Park. This is a great little git-away spot very close to OKC that really seems miles away. It is set in rustic canyons with a chain of small lakes weaving through the park. There is a state lodge located in the park and the restaurant has great food and even better views.

Today we will spend

The restaurant has a very cozy fireplace.
in Watonga - the cheese capital of Oklahoma. There are several antique shops along the old rustic main street, so we are sure to have a day filled with wonder!!!

These are probably the funkiest trees you will see around. They have really unique growths on their trunks that make them look very sinister. Cynde was really brave.

The lakes are small but look like great kayaking and fishing venues.

Very cold this morning, but the chill in the air makes for a brisk jaunt to catch a photo.
