I've seen this building in photos from others who have taken this route but it crept up on me and surprised me just the same! Endless miles of trees and a single wide every once in awhile were abruptly interrupted by this structure in the middle of the road and several others with similar architecture. There was even a "mom squad" of ladies walking down the road with strollers, dogs and kids as if strolling through a suburban neighborhood.
And like all the others, they disappeared back into a lonely road. This time however, I was kept company by several miles of high fence belonging to a very large ranch.
The symbolic end to my trip was rejoining the pavement just outside Muldrow. Small town night life was in full swing - a basketball game had broken out behind the fire department and people were gathering for Wednesday night service at the local church.
In order to get back to Tulsa, I had to follow the route a bit more which took me under I40 and down to the next town which had an on ramp.
Along the way a train and the clouds got the best of me.
Now in Sallisaw, I stopped for a quick bathroom break and jumped on to the highway for home. Another segment done and another great day exploring in the books.
