Friday PM report

Dateline: Holiday Inn Express, Weatherford OK

High winds again today caused a slight change in plans. We went to Palo Duro Canyon, Canyon, TX as planned. It was nice and scenic, but some clouds came in and messed up the photography. Besides, when one has been to Canyon de Chelly, Bryce, Zion and Canyonlands (not to mention the big daddy), it wasn't that impressive. Since it's in Texas, they shouldn't call it a canyon, just a Texas-sized gully.

Then came the change in plans. Instead of continuing on to the Washita Battlefield, we visited the Panhandle/Plains Museum inCanyon, on the campus of West Texas A&M. Good decision! Art, history, paleontology, geology, pioneer town, oil derricks ... could have spent more than the 90 minutes we were there.

Got in to Weatherford OK at 7 PM at a NICE Holiday Inn Express. Processed today's pictures and will send the one on the post below to some of our lodging industry friends.

Tomorrow: Leave here at 7:30, get to the Cowboy Hall of Fame in OK City when it opens at 9, then on to Tulsa, Carthage and home!

Miles: 375, time on road (& sightseeing): 9:55. Gas prices paid: $2.55 to $2.65.
