Wichitas Day 3: Typical Tourists in Transit

Wendy makes a hole-in-one

Wendy and I spent our final day in the Wichitas being typical tourists in transit. After a nice breakfast outside at the Sundance Café, rather than donning hiking boots, we grabbed putters at the nearby miniature golf course and put them to use on its 18 holes. Wendy made a hole-in-one on the “His and Hers” hole, something I could not replicate. Then we donned life jackets and took a paddle boat out below the Altus Dam’s spillway.

We then began the 300 mile drive home by heading north, past the western face of the Quartz Mountain range, to Granite to see its fake cemetery of funny tombstones. Along the way, large jet planes flew south toward Altus Air Force Base.

Along Interstate 40, we stopped in at the Cherokee Trading Post to pose by two different buffalo statues. We saw damage and debris from the recent F-5 tornado near El Reno. Dinner was in Tulsa with friends, and then it was back to Bartlesville.
