48 hour Road trip to the Panhandle of Oklahoma
29 hours of driving
900+ miles on the odometer
50+ Oklahoma towns visited
1,578 photos taken
Every photo in this collection along with every photo I've posted over the last 2 days on my Oklahoma Abandoned Instagram and Facebook pages have been taken with my cell phone so that I could update and share real time with you all as I progressed through the road trip. I can't wait to share my photos from my professional camera setup but that might be a few days as I get them prepared.
So, I'm finally home and catching some much needed rest. It was such a great trip and I'm so glad I was able to do it. Oklahoma offered up some amazing views and seriously cool architecture. I felt like I was stopping almost every 10 or 15 minutes to photograph something.
Until I got to the panhandle...
The panhandle was less exciting. The first hour or so I was pretty amazed by the flatness of it but after that hour I started to get bored. Structures, people, and even trees started to get very few and far between.
Once I got to the tip of the panhandle around Boise City it started get really really pretty though. The Black Mesa is probably one of, if not the most beautiful part of the state.
I look forward to editing all of the photos and sharing them along with all of my experiences and the history of the places I visited. I have a TON of content to share!
