Roadtrip 2011- Round Barn, POPS, Route 66 Museums, & Cadillac Ranch

LuluComment

Driving along Route 66 and the main Interstates in Oklahoma and Texas we made stops along the way at various interesting places...

The Round Barn in Arcardia, Oklahoma.

It was raining when we got to The Round Barn and we ran to the door of the visitors center. We were unpleasantly greeted by an old man who told us that they were closed and then he spit a hunk of chaw in a garbage can, we then asked when did you close, he looked at the clock which pointed to just a little before 4:00 and replied 4:00 and spat more chaw into the garbage can. We left The Round Barn disgusted and amused...

POPS in Arcardia, Oklahoma.

POPS is filled with every imaginable flavor of pop from around the world. The large bottle out front glows a rainbow of colors in the evening. At the POPS diner Chris got a malt and I got a chocolate milkshake. It was the best chocolate shake I have ever had in my life. We had intended to get a soda each after our stop in the diner but, we were too full to do so...
