Making up for…deficiencies

Pickup back window

I made yesterday’s post on the fly, which is theoretically “just fine.” Looking back, I didn’t draw from our full set of images-of-the-day, and blah blah.

Green lndscp

As we sped east across OK, then AR, we saw far more spring vegetation than we remembered from westbound. This image shows more green than I remember from most of the hills and valleys, but, hey, pretty!

Oil pump

We saw towers that I hypothesized were for fracking, but this is an old-fashioned oil derrick. Plenty of them!

Onion truck

We found truck loads often unidentifiable (because: covered/closed), but this was all onions, all the way.

Transformers

And this was what I think of as transformers, but maybe I have that wrong.
