6/13–6/15/2013–Anthony, Kansas

We left the campground at Chickasha, OK on the morning of 6/13 headed to our destination of Anthony, Kansas.

We hope not to ever do business with JoeBob.


This was one of many murals we saw painted on the sides of buildings in route.


We drove through El Reno, OK where a tornado on gone through about a week after the Moore, OK tornado.  We noticed a lot of roof damage as well as piles of roofing and other materials along the sides of the highway.




This statue was on a corner in the town of Kingfisher, OK.  As we entered the city limits, I saw a sign indicating it was the birthplace of Sam Walton, founder of Walmart.


Once we crossed the Kansas border, it was just a few short miles to our destination of Anthony.


I took this photo of our site once we got hooked up and ready to leave in the morning.  It’s at a very large city park on Anthony Lake.


This area has been hit hard by the drought and this is what’s left of Anthony Lake.  The houses shown are lakefront properties and although it can’t really be seen here, most of them have docks in front of their houses.  When we arrived, we talked to a man who was doing the mowing and he said the lake was pretty well dried up since last year.  That probably explains why there was only one other RVer besides us camped here during our stay.


The remainder of the photos were taken at the Anthony Museum which we toured this morning.  One of the volunteers there today took time to give us a personal tour and she was very knowledgeable having been working there for 27 years!  Most of their exhibits have been donated and some are on loan.  It was quite an impressive collection.




We returned to the RV for the afternoon to just relax and make some preparations for our trip tomorrow.
