Today I flew from Providence to Atlanta and then on to Tulsa, OK. Then I drove 2 hours to Joplin, MO. I thought I was headed to Joplin, KS (I don’t think there is a Joplin, KS, though). Tomorrow I demo in Parson, KS so I think that is what threw me off. You should have heard my mom when I told her I was in Missouri. The whole state is not under water.
On my way to Joplin I stopped in Catoosa, OK to go and have lunch at Mojo’s BBQ. To my dismay Mojo’s is closed. One of the best BBQ places I have ever been to along historic Route 66 is now closed. It was disappointing.
Then I made a stop over to the Blue Whale park. It still looks the same. I took a few photos for the next photo challenge, the April Challenge. the theme is Entropy. Unless someone repairs this then it will certainly be completely lost in a few years.
Then I drove to Joplin. I saw a Harley Shop one exit before the one I was supposed to get off so I hit the hotel first and went back to pick up my pins. I collect Harley Pins from every place I have traveled.
While I was there I asked the woman working there of a place that would be nice to go to take photos. She told me about a waterfall that was down the road. She also said that she thought the road was pretty clear and no longer flooded. But man, the water was up pretty high.
I drove over the bridge and then down the road a ways there were a bunch of cars pulled over and many people at the waterfall.
I didn’t realize it was such a major spot, but apparently people take their wedding pictures here as well as their senior photos. There was some interesting rock in the area as well.
So I walked around a bit and took some photos, then it was off to get some dinner. I popped over to Buffalo Wild Wings and had some tasty wings. An early morning tomorrow and a drive over to Parsons, KS. Yes, I am sure it is Kansas this time.
