Road Trip on Route 66 Across Oklahoma to Amarillo
|Vintage postcard showing the location of Route 66 across Oklahoma|
As Route 66 left Joplin, Missouri, it was only a short distance to the Oklahoma border. It quickly entered Miami, and headed southwest to Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
From there, it was a straight shot west through Weatherford, Clinton and Elk City.
The Mother Road crossed the Texas state line near Shamrock, and moved on to Amarillo.
