Second Time Around...Road Trip Day Three

Up bright and early to get out of Oklahoma City, turning north on I-44, just like the Eddie Kendricks song "Keep on Truckin." We're heading for the Land of Lincoln. As we left, we passed under the golden arches.

Then it was into the state of Missouri, which is dotted with old barns. This is a typical Missouri roadside.
Then we came upon Meramec Caverns, which opened for tourist business in 1935! These old Route 66 caverns were the alleged hide out of Jesse James and his gang (before Sandra Bullock).

Finally entering Illinois, we crossed over the Mississippi River. Now to find a log cabin to spend the night in at Springfield. Tomorrow will be our final day on the road.
