Welcome to Oklahoma! 287 and 385 don’t spent much time in the state, basically just cruising across the panhandle. Oklahoma Highway 3 begins here though, and that goes all the way to Arkansas, making it the only highway that travels from Colorado to Arkansas. I have no idea why such a highway is necessary, but it’s cool just the same.
