Tunnels of Tulsa - Allen, Texas

We trekked up to Tulsa, Oklahoma from Allen, Texas this past weekend to do some urban exploration.   On the way up we saw thousands upon thousands of birds all flying in a migration south.  It seemed like we were viewing the "East Australian current" popular in Finding Nemo but for birds!!

Did you know there are secret underground tunnels in downtown Tulsa? These tunnels were built in the 1920s by wealthy businessmen at first easily move goods between two buildings.  In that time period there were a few  kidnappings in Chicago so the tunnels were used for the wealthy men to move easily about the city without risk of danger.    These tunnels connect eight buildings, parking garages, hotel and small downtown Tulsa shops.   We only walked a short portion of the tunnels and plan to do a tunnel tour one day soon.
