This Land is Your Land, This Land is Our Land...Mostly Ours Since Eliot Marked Most of it Last Week

Our spring break trip in a nutshell: Fly to Little Rock and spend the day, then drive to Paragould and Pocahontas to get our NEW CAR! Turn right around and drive to Fayetteville the same day. Leave town and drive to Portland via Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California. Stop along the way to see the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial, Petrified Forest, Hoover Dam, Las Vegas, San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. Roughly 2,600 miles in roughly four days.

Part One:
We decided to stop at the Oklahoma City Memorial because we thought it was a shame that we had lived so close and never gone. If you haven’t gone and you have the opportunity to do so, do so. We agreed that it was one of the better memorials we have seen. I guess that could have something to do with the fact that we both remember that day really well. The Lincoln Memorial is fantastic, but I don’t have a firsthand memory of the guy.

The smaller chairs are representative of the children. Sad. We have a lot more pictures, but they seem stuck sideways for now. We will devote a proper post to the memorial soon. Tomorrow, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.
