Back to the Cowboy Museum. We'd decided to have lunch there, Navajo Taco or Frito Pie - closed on Mondays. Guess I need to research better next time. It's a good museum, lots of great art, a firearms collection, western history, rodeo, western movies. Worn out again!
On to Lawton w/o a real lunch. just a quick stop at a McDs. Got to the Museum of the Great Plains, an interactive museum which is great for kids but a bit overpriced for adults familiar with the history & geography. A high point is the tornado experience simulation - you're in a cellar for a major tornado hearing all the sounds. Sandra met a couple of bison, this giant bronze one
and this sleepy character
Right next door is the Comanche National Museum and Heritage Center. The gentleman manning the desk was a relative of the last Comanche code talker of the 14 who landed at Utah Beach and were involved in the rest of WWII in Europe. This museum covers the history & culture of the Comanche people in brief, and it's free. It even has a "selfies site."
Found our Candlewood Suites & checked in, went to Golden Corral for supper, and had another surprise when we got back - a fraud detected email on my credit card. Ouch!
211 miles on the day, 559 on the trip. Tomorrow we drive to Pecos TX on I-44, US-277 & I-20.
