El Reno OK to Canyon, TX

November 2, 2015

Again this morning there was fog when we got up.

Then about 7:10am this morning, out our side window, we
could see the sun rising through the fog.

We drove across the parking lot for Egg McMuffins  and coffee and a little after 8:00am we were back on I 40 heading West.

This was the road ahead as we merged onto the Interstate.

A few miles down the road we crested a hill and this is what
we saw, nothing but blue skies ahead.

Views of Oklahoma as we drove west this morning.

Some wind turbines at work in Oklahoma.
We crossed into Texas a little after 11 this morning.

Some views of Texas out our window today.

Then off towards the North  as far as the eye could see hundreds and hundreds of wind turbines. A little farther west and there were some on the South side.

I love seeing these out the window.

Presently we are parked at the Palo Duro RV Park in Canyon, TX. Not the worse park we have ever stayed at but not up there on the we will come back and stay again list. It will serve its purpose as it is close to two Texas State Parks we want to visit, Palo Duro Canyon and Caprocks Canyon. The plan was to stay at Palo Duro Canyon but the road in is a 10% grade going down to the canyon floor and we are not sure about coming back up towing the 5th wheel so we opted to stay at this park and drive back tomorrow and visit. We will be here at least three days and then we will decide what we want to do next.

I kept humming this refrain after I wrote about nothing but blue skies ahead.

"... Blue skies smiling at me nothing but blue skies do I see..."
