Fall 2019

Here are a few pictures of Fall.  Leaves are turning.  Branches are becoming bare.  There a cool, blistering breeze in the air.  The kind that can blow you down and there is not enough clothing that you can put on the protect you from the cold wind.

Sunrise, from Hotel Parking Lots

Some people stay at a hotel until it is time to check out.  Me I wake up and get going.  One of benefit is I get to see a lot of sunrises.  Here are the pictures I took from the hotel parking lot.  I saw a bunch more sunrises.  No pictures because I was driving.

Tulsa Botanic Garden

If you are ever near Tulsa, Oklahoma, anywhere near Tulsa, the trip to Tulsa Botanic Gardens is worth the trip.  Even the drive to this remote location, north-west of Tulsa, is beautiful with it’s rolling hills and trees.  The garden is absolutely gorgeous.   Wear sunscreen, because you may want to stay all day.  Wear inset repellent, because you probably will want to take the 1.5 mile nature hike.

Old Cowtown

Old Cowtown is located in Wichita, Kansas.  They have relocated some of the old buildings that were built around Wichita to this museum.  It is located next to the Arkansas River on Museum Boulevard.  Across the street is the Botanical Gardens, which is worth a visit.

Settlers used to live in houses that were small, but it  suited their needs.

They packed their wagons and move to Kansas.  I think they were trying to get out of the over grown city in the East and the mosquitoes in the South.

Every town had a church. But, in the South every town seemed to have a Baptist Church, a Catholic Church, and a Methodist Church.  Which were usually across the street from each other.

I made a friend while visiting Old Cowtown.

At noon, there was a fight on the street of the town.  A couple was robbed.  The wife took the husband gun and shot the robber.  The wife went home, the robber was okay, and the husband went to the saloon.

Outside to town, there was a farm.  They even had a lazy cow.  She was eating laying down.
