Road trips can either be fun. I did suffer from the “get there” syndrome terribly, especially coming home after a stress-filled week. But on the trip out we did see some notable things. Like the giant morel mushroom — I will let you decide what it really looks like! — in Nevada, Missouri, on Highway 71. I’ve read that it lights up night.
Three! dirt race tracks. Made my pound a bit faster. Buzzards, hawks, and beautiful redwing blackbirds.
Did you know there are wild day lilies growing along the highway frontage in Iowa?
In The Mayo parking lot, I saw comfort at it finest.
On the way home, I made sure we stopped at the glass house McDonald’s in Big Cabin, Oklahoma. Yes, a McDonald’s that spans across both sides of the Will Rogers Turnpike.
