Wandering Around America One State at a Time – Oklahoma

State 33:

Welcome to the next post in my series highlighting states we have visited throughout the years. I hope you will enjoy coming along for the ride!

I will be featuring the states alphabetically. The next state in my series is


Oklahoma became the 46th  state on November 16, 1907. The capital is Oklahoma City.

On one of our cross country RV trips we wanted to experience something different in Oklahoma. Red Rock Canyon State Park was just the spot. The entrance to the park was a short distance from I-40 but getting to the campsite required going down a fairly steep grade with a couple of switch backs down into the canyon. Our site was peaceful and a great place to unwind for a couple of nights. We hiked on the Rough Horsetail Nature Trail in the park and explored a few shops on nearby historic Route 66.

I loved the dog walk area at this Oklahoma rest area.

Blondie is definitely a country dog!

We love following the University of Georgia Bulldogs football team to away games. In 2009 we traveled to Stillwater, Oklahoma for a game between the Bulldogs and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The game was on the day of the dedication for newly renovated Boone Pickens Stadium.
