We are in northwest Oklahoma, near Alva, on a Girl Scout outing.
As we drove in, I was amazed by the prevalence of operational fracking installations around. At most any location along US412, there would be at least five fracking places visible. From Alabaster Caverns State Park, on the overlook, I counted six (and that doesn’t include the gypsum mine to the northeast, which was built to provide gravel to pave roads to fracking installations).
There have to be thousands of them scattered over this part of the state.
Oh, and pretty much everywhere we go, cell coverage is 4G.
