Besides the Red River, Texas and Oklahoma share Route 66 with some other states!
A few things I can say about Texas is we love our country music!
Some country music artists from Texas: Willie Nelson, Freddie Fender, Charlie Pride, Waylon Jennings, and George Strait. There are a lot more!
What I like about Texas are the wildflowers. I know other states have wildflowers, I just have not seen them like the ones I see in Texas. Whole fields of nothing but Blue Bonnets, Indian Paintbrush, or Firewheels.
"Okie from Muskogee as sung by Merle Haggard is a great song!"
Merle Haggard, born and died on the same day,April 6th. Woody Guthrie, Leon Russell, Jesse Ed Davis, singer/song writers, musicians from Oklahoma.
I live in Oregon, and play country western and bluegrass, on dobro and slide guitar...among other things
OKC girl here! Another great aspect of Oklahoma is that it has more ecological regions per square mile than any other state. It truly is an “edge” area where East meets West and North meets South.
Lived in San Antonio for a while too - loved that region, though the mountain cedar allergies hit me like a ton of bricks between Christmas and Valentine’s Day each year!
I’ll be coming up on one year in the SE of the UK soon - this is definitely a place that can compete for wildflowers! They’re amazing mid-summer. My older kiddo has fallen in love with poppies, and they’re everywhere around then!
“O frischer Duft, o neuer Klang! Nun, armes Herze, sei nicht bang!
Nun muss sich Alles, Alles wenden.”
