DAY 71: DENTON, TX TO TULSA, OK

The tour continued on with its seventy-first day in Denton, TX. We headed north on highway 35 and passed a labyrinth of woven bridges. Soon enough, we then entered the state of Oklahoma. When we arrived in Thackerville, OK, it was as if we had taken the ID.4 on a world-wide tour. There were buildings modeled after many world landmarks such as London’s Big Ben to the Roman Colosseum. The WinStar World Casino is the world’s biggest casino with nearly 400,000 square feet of gaming floor. The Casino is also owned and operated by the Chickasaw Nation native american tribe. We charged the ID.4 at an Electrify America station in Ardmore, OK. To our surprise a little bird had landed on the car and we were able to sneak a picture of the Great-tailed Grackle, a native Oklahoman bird. We would get a taste of the midwestern states country-side. There was a large red tractor with 10 wheels driving down a country road. We then passed by a cattle farm that had a plethora of cows. The group of farm animals were grazing around a small lake and one even decided to go for a swim. We passed through the Will Rogers Turnpike toll road. The toll road would charge drivers a fee to pass by. Then we travelled down a long country road with trees lining both sides. The trees are placed alongside the road as shelterbelts in order to protect farmsteads and livestock areas against the wind. We made it to Oklahoma City, the state’s capitol. We briefly checked out the downtown area. The Oklahoma City National Memorial is used to honor the victims and individuals affected by the 1995 bombing. Even at night, you can see the symbolism illuminated in order to pay respect. The memorial exhibits the time 9:01 representing the final moment of innocence before the tragedy.  After visiting the memorial, we continued east and finished the day in Tulsa, OK.
