The best little rest stop in Oklahoma

Than pulled over randomly at a rest stop and so we go in to take care of things, like you do. It's the Oklahoma welcome center on I-40 west. First thing I notice is these fun teepee like structures providing shade (kind of) for the picnic tables.

Going inside I had to do a double take, I thought we had walked into a hotel lobby..

And this awesome work of art hangs over their heads.

There's free coffee that doesn't suck, comfy chairs, clean facilities, super friendly people, and free wi-fi too. I don't think I've ever felt the urge to blog about a rest stop before, but there you go :P now it's time to get back on the road... Yayyyy


  1. So glad it was great! Oddly, a Welcome Center in Mississippi (when I drove to help my sister after cancer surgery) was also great. A group of dulcimer players was rehearsing in one part of the spacious center, and a gospel group had stopped in for a break...and they ended up singing and playing together. Even though it's not 'my' genre, it was amazing and inspiring. Ain't life grand?

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Very cool! It's nice to have a friendly respite when you're on the road. Hope all continues to go well. Give the kitties a kiss for me.
