Trip With Granddad

You're not going in any particular direction on US 166 and US 169 in Coffeeville, KS. Okay, so after getting a county on US 166, we go back on SB US 169 to return to Green Country.
Bye-bye Kansas, it's been fun! Entering Cherokee Nation.
South US 169. Oklahoma's speed limit signs have such huge numerals!
US 169 has a super-short Alternate Route in Nowata; I think that's the town it's in. At US 60 in Nowata.
I'm gonna go ahead and say this is OK 88 SB south of Oologah, but it could also be US 169 SB. Stop ahead!
You'll have to read the sign for yourself, I'm not going to tell you what it says. In Claremore, we pick up OK 20.  Old US 66 runs through this town.
And here it is!  The new-style OK 66 shields. But down at US 412, there is still an old-style OK 88 marker.
The interchange with US 412... ...which is a rural expressway...
...with a 70 m.p.h. speed limit. And here's the exit for US 69 South and North.
Much of US 69 between Big Cabin and Muskogee looks like this. Eh, it's blurry, but this is what Wagoner looks like from US 69 SB.
OK 51 crosses US 69 in Wagoner. Passing the Muskogee Turnpike.
Here is OK 51B, which parallels the turnpike, headed west from here, to Coweta. Southbound US 69 has been repaved.
The road on the north side of Muskogee has this weird brick median.  I kinda like it.  It's not normal. A blurry, but recently reworked portion of US 69 SB on the north side of Muskogee.  The road has been widened to 6 lanes with a concrete base.
And, as we fade off into the sunset, a shot of Shawnee Bypass.  On a map, this is known as US 62 and OK 16.  That's it.  Go see some other Oklahoma stuff now!
