As the title indicates we have stopped for the night in Sayre, OK at their city park. It has long pull-thru sites, no need to unhook, and the sites include water and electric for $12 plus there is a dump station. The weather is beautiful it was around 78 degrees when we pulled in and checking just now it is only down to 64 degrees. It is a quiet park and looks well maintained. According to the information listed there is a 9 hole golf course, a lighted walking trail, pool, tennis, basketball, horseshoe pits, miniature golf, fishing ponds,volley ball, plus a playground area. Though it did not look like the pool or miniature golf was open. It is just a few miles off of I40 and it will definitely be on our list of places to stop when traveling through Oklahoma on I40.

|Traveling east on I40.|
|We have crossed into Oklahoma though neither of us|
ever saw a sign indicating we had
until the Information Center.
We will continue heading east in the morning. Not sure what the next stop will be. We have decided to just let the day unfold in front of us as we go.
Filling in some of the blanks:

In the morning we moved back over to the Plomosa Rd BLM lands for our final 5 days camping in the desert near Quartzsite.

behind the mountains.
|The nice thing about clouds is the color they|
provide as the sun sets.

|We had seen this ultra-light fly by several times when|
we were parked over in LaPosa South.
It turns out we parked just a little ways from him
when we moved to Plomosa Road.

This was the sunrise just before we took off to spend the day driving over to and through Joshua Tree National Park. (My next fill in the blank post will cover this day.)

It was windy on Sunday.
I put together some collages to show what we could see looking in each direction. The top left picture was our view on Sunday when the wind was the worse. The top right is Monday and the bottom was taken on Tuesday morning before we left.
It was a beautiful yard to look out at which is why we choose this spot. The dust was hard to take and we only ventured out on Sunday to go into Quartzsite for Mass. Otherwise, we were inside with the windows shut yet the desert dust seeped in and covered everything. Though I must say two days of wind and dust does not take away from the beauty, quiet, and solitude of this place. We know if everything falls into place we will be back next year.
|The sun setting behind the dust.|
We are in Quartzsite.
|When we got back to our spot the sun had set behind the|
mountains but there was a enough light left
to see the dust in the distance.
