 Clap


I particularly like Pawhuska with the 5 story Flatiron Building wanna be. 5 stories in that town means it was a central part of the downtown (and probably still is). I also saw 3 for sure movie theaters.  Bigok  I love riding thru old towns.


Looks like we have some letters to fill in though.

updated.  I know where there are a couple of 'Z' towns so that will be easy, but finding an 'X' is proving to be really difficult.  I can't even find an old ghost town...  No Xenia, no Xray.  There's got to be something in this whole state...

I checked my Oklahoma atlas published by DeLorme and they don't list any towns starting with X. And DeLorme is pretty good at listing non-incorporated communities. I also checked abandoned Oklahoma website http://www.abandonedok.com/interact/maps/ghost-towns-of-oklahoma/  with no results. I dunno, maybe move on to a town that has X in the name?  Shrug

There's always I.X.L, Oklahoma (certainly one of the more oddly named towns in the state).  I've ridden through it a few times, but there's hardly enough to take a picture.  It might be as close as I'll come to an X-town.

We've been playing the A to Z on a local board and we ended up using I.X.L. for our "X" town. It means Indian Exchange Land.

I really enjoyed this post and Pawhuska is familiar in name thanks to the Pioneer Woman.

We rode through Pawhuska last weekend about 11:30 on Saturday. The line at the Pioneer Woman Mercantile was a block long.

Thank you for that information as we plan on riding through the town in September as we head out through the panhandle on our way to Pikes Peak. We will have to arrive early and be prepared to wait to get into the restaurant.

If you are on adventure-style bikes, I recommend a detour through the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve just north of Pawhuska.

That sounds like a good day trip for me. Been through Pawhuska quite a few time coming back from the northern Ozarks. Wife always makes me stop and check out the town, but I've never ridden through the TPP.  I suspect you've done a ride report with pics? I always read your reports and really enjoy them as they are centered where I grew up as a kid and bring back fond memories,
