Got a good start out of Elk City on highway 34 but I need to add to our story of Elk City after I wrote last night’s post.
First Old Historic Highway 66 and Elk City has a very large museum pertaining to Highway 66. We didn’t get to go through any of them but we did get to walk around the area. You can’t miss that the museum is there because of the big Route US 66 sign.
We always like to eat at local family owned restaurants which we did in Elk City. It was DD’s Mediterranean restaurant that had only been open for a couple of weeks. The maître d asked us questions about our bike ride since I had on my Bike the US for MS shirt. It turned out she had two close friends that have MS and she wouldn’t let us pay for our dinner. I will be making another donation to MS in the name of the restaurant
Now on to Woodward OK. This was a straight shot on Highway 34. Nothing magical as far as the road goes. No way to get lost since it was just one highway. I didn’t even find anything I found worth stopping to take a picture. It did seem like this rode was designed by a bike rider since the towns were spaced out well for rest stops.
The magic of the day happened in camp. We are staying in Boiling Springs State Park just outside of Woodward. Here we met some of the nicest people. They asked about the bike ride and even invited us to dinner. They had a nice RV so we couldn’t refuse.
They asked a lot of questions about this ride and some of my previous rides. They were a true blessing and the food was great also.
They were a nice couple from Sapulpa OK by the name of Mike and Lorrie David. Mike’s parents were also camping with them. The Lord blesses us in many ways.
