Today we drove from Oklahoma City to Albuquerque -- definitely a scenic route in a southwestern way. Western Oklahoma has ranches, cattle, oil wells, wind farms, and bales of hay. The Texas Panhandle is vast, flat, almost vacant. Eastern New Mexico has deep arroyos with exposed red rock sides, as one is climbing all the time to get to the high plane. At one point we could briefly spot some snow-topped mountains, but never caught sight of them again.
