Five States in One Afternoon!
(Aka "State Tag")
February 22, 2014

The Goal:  To visit five states in one afternoon.  Result:  Accomplished!


New Mexico 3:16 PM. 

U.S. 56 near Clayton, NM.  Since we started from New Mexico, getting the "Welcome Sign" for the Land of Enchantment was the easiest and first to collect.


Oklahoma 3:18 PM. 

Across the road way on U.S. 56 from the New Mexico "Welcome Sign":  Oklahoma.


Texas 3:57 PM (4:57 PM CentralTime).  15 miles south of US 56 on US 385, "Texas."


Colorado 4:44 PM ((5:44 PM Central Time).  15 miles north of Boise City, OK on U.S. 385:  "Welcome to Colorful Colorado."


Kansas 5:38 PM (6:38 PM Central Time).  And finally, on U.S. 56 at Elkhart, KS:  "Welcome to Kansas"--the Land of Dorothy!
