County seat - Stilwell / County population per 2000 Census - 21,038
Did you miss us? As I have said numerous time this project is always a work in progress. I've had this photo processed for awhile but just haven't gotten around to publishing it. I would like to note that this is the first 77counties photo to actually feature a human in it. Your's truly is literally riding a fence in Adair County. I'm not sure who built this fence gate but I can't help but think they have a sense of humor. I would also like to think that by building a fence like this, they don't mind wandering travelers like myself stopping to jump on for a photo op. If they do mind, then I apologize in advance. At the same time I want to say thanks for giving us some laughs this wonderful afternoon.
Roadside oddities are one of my favorite things in life. I'm not sure why I enjoy them so much. Maybe it's growing up around route 66 and the roadside Americana that is much a part of it. Regardless, anytime I see something like this I am fascinated and have to take a closer look. So you can imagine my joy when we left Stilwell and headed towards Tahlequah only to find this gem along the way. I knew as soon as I flew past it that I had to do a U-turn because that was indeed "the photo" for Adair County.
The multitude of kids activities have kept us from doing a lot of road trips lately. However we will try to get back on the road and posting more counties for your enjoyment soon. We have a long way to go, but unlike "the Bandit" we don't have a short time to get there. So we hope you will continue to check in on us from time to time as we post more of the 77 counties.
