Caprock Canyons is in Briscoe County, Texas in the panhandle where the Red River has carved the land into a network of red-walled canyons.
Fargo, Oklahoma and a cool and foggy morning.
Crossing one of the tributaries of the Red River. In June, I might have expected to see more water than this.
Turkey, Texas is the home town of Bob Wills. I've been through here a few times before, but have yet to stop and go through the Bob Wills museum.
They do have the band's tour bus along main street, looking like it was parked just as it was the last time the "Texas Playboys" were on tour. The interior is furnished as a motorhome.
Caprock Canyons State Park was created in 1982 and includes some surprisingly rugged land. People have been living here for thousands of years. There's a herd of buffalo that seems to be free to roam wherever they want, but this time they weren't on the roads (which is good--I've always been nervous when riding a motorcycle through a group of these large animals).
There are a number of hiking trails in the park. I took just one, and didn't go much farther than the canyon wall you see in the distance.
I think my timing was perfect; everything was in bloom.
The Quartz Mountains are the western extension of the Wichita Mountains. They're unexpected things in this otherwise flat country of southwest Oklahoma.
That storm in the distance? At the same time I took this shot (standing in a wheat field), multiple tornados were striking near Oklahoma City. I'm about fifty miles from El Reno.
Little Sahara Sand Dunes is a large area of exposed sand on the north side of the Cimarron River. It's open to off-road vehicles.
