Northwest Passage–On to Colorado.

oklahomaLeaving Canton Lake, our next destination was La Junta, Colorado.

Most of our trips to and from Colorado have required crossing two or more states to go between Arkansas and Colorado. Our last two trips traveling to Colorado, though, have crossed only Oklahoma by going though Oklahoma’s panhandle, a relatively narrow section of land that separates the Texas panhandle from Colorado and Kansas.

From Canton Lake to the Colorado border, we traveled State Highway 3, the longest highway in the Oklahoma road system. The portion we traveled is officially designated “Governor George Nigh’s Northwest Passage.”

The route lies across a portion of the North American Great Plains, a broad expanse of flat land with few trees, comprised mostly of prairie, steppe and grassland.
