A few more pics from our Sunday Drive last week. (see previous post here)While it is relaxing to drive and explore, there are also life lessons to be learned. For example, while we were driving, a morbid picture was painted when we came upon a very dead couldn’t tell what it was  critter in the middle of the road.  Just a couple of feet from it was the also deceased vulture who was so focused on his lunch, he didn’t see what was coming.stillwater...car coming

SO.  I had a look-out AND I stayed alert. 🙂

Have a great weekend.  Be safe and, “Be Kind One to Another” ♥

    Loved seeing the “rolled” hay when we were in OK a couple years ago. That was a new one on me:) Thanks for always sharing your enjoyable drives with us!

  5. Great old bridge. Is it wooden planks or busted concrete they’ve tried to patch with asphalt. I can’t quite tell.

    Great photos again, my favorite is the field with all the straw bales. To be the co-driver/pilot … is a big responsibility – so you better keeping your eye where they should be.

    • Everyone is cutting right now and so the fields everywhere are just begging to be painted or photographed. As for the eyes….yes….have to be careful! 🙂

        Same here … the straw is cut, but the wheat should be cut now .. we had far too little rain this spring and summer. Farmers are not pleased at all. If they ever are.

      • Our wheat harvest time is after the spring rains….which we actually got this year. I love watching the waving wheat around here. Soon we will see the winter wheat growing again.

      • viveka says:

        Okay so they grow twice per year … didn’t know that. Wouldn’t be suitable for us over here, we hardly manage to get the summer crop done. *smile Feel really sorry for the farmers this year – no rain, but we have plenty of wild berries and mushrooms this year.

      • Once a year harvest….but they plant it in the fall and it is not harvested til early summer. Something so promising seeing the green winter wheat snowing….and then it turns golden with the sun in late spring. I am so sorry for the drought you are in. ;( So wide spread.

      • viveka says:

        I know … not really complaining … but the farmers … and they have cut down on water usage too for car washes .. and fountains. It’s not hot – its nice hot .. and with a good breeze.

  10. I really love the bridge!! Beautiful photos. Pumping oil could have been in Southern California. They look the same everywhere, I suppose. 🙂
