After a very good breakfast this morning which included hot waffles, cereal, toast, fruit, and even breakfast burritos, at the hotel we got on the road for a long day.
Our first stop was at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building Plaza and Memorial. We didn’t actually stop to walk through the memorial area, but did take a few photos as we slowly drove around the block.
From there we drove another mile or two to the State Capitol Building where we got pictures of it also.
The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum was our final stop in Oklahoma City. I knew about this one from a little research I had done about the Sculpture entitled "End of the Trail" which shows an Indians on horseback, too exhausted to continue on. The town where I live has a full sized bronze replica of the original piece that this museum gave us in payment for the original which was showing signs of decay after sitting in the outdoor weather of the San Joaquin Valley for several years. The brought it back here to Oklahoma City, restored it to original and have it on display as a main feature as you walk into the site. It is very impressive. Photos are only allowed in the outer corridors, so we only got a few, but they were of some nice pieces. Statues of Charlton Heston, John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, and even Abraham Lincoln were on display. The galleries had some wonderful art work and photographs. We could have spent much more time here.
