Skywatch Friday - East on US 65

Driving east on US 65 to Branson, Missouri we get into the western reaches of the Ozark mountains.  The Ozarks are very old and have been smoothed down by millions of years of erosion. 

As we get closer to Branson we drive through a newer stretch of road which has been carved out of the hills rather than going up and down.  You can see the long  marks where they drilled deep into the rock and blasted it out of the way.

Here in Oklahoma we are all still trying to digest the devastation of Monday's terrible tornado about 100 miles west of Tulsa in the Oklahoma City suburb Moore.  My friend and fellow blogger Alan Bates posted some sky photos and quoted a beautiful essay by Oklahoma Today Editor Nathan Gunter about the relationship between Okies and the sky. It is the sort of thing I wish I were eloquent enough to have written.  Every word of it is true. Look at  "Yogi's Den"
