Day 19 - Eureka Springs, Arkansas - Christ of the Ozarks and The Passion Play

We arrived in Eureka Springs late on Day 18.  We checked in (after hours) at the Wanderlust RV Park and Debra did laundry while I drained the tanks and refilled the fresh water tank.  We ate dinner and watched a little TV before going to sleep.

Had a good nights sleep, the weather was nice and cool and the campground was pretty quiet.  We went to the office to pay for the nights stay and we were on our way to town.  Our first stop was at The Christ of the Ozarks.  Located at 1,500 feet above sea level is a 67 foot tall statue of Christ.  

Day 18 - Guthrie, Oklahoma

We had spent the night at the Walmart in Weatherford, OK and had a good nights sleep.  Woke up and had breakfast and was on the road at 10:30 am.  I never said we are early risers.  Driving on the interstate was really windy and I decided to change the GPS to avoid highways.  I really prefer that, you get to see so much more of the country that way, it just takes a little longer.  On this leg of our trip discovered ourselves in Guthrie.  What a beautiful city!  In 1889 the area grew by about 10,000 people when they the land rush.  Here are photos of the buildings downtown.
