I saw this huge crape myrtle in full blossom on a recent trip back to Arizona from Oklahoma via Texas. (Sometimes we go across the top (I-17/ I-40), but this photo was taken on our way across the bottom (I-35/I-20/I-10). I believe we were still in Oklahoma, somewhere around Paul's Valley as I recall. I was able to take photographs because I wasn't driving for a change. My youngest son came along and provided good company and excellent chauffeur service.
Because of family ties I have visited Oklahoma many times. The photo in my blog header is a view of I-40 somewhere in New Mexico, taken on the eastward leg of this trip.
