469. Ardmore, Carter County (OK63)

Look at you! What a stunning creature you are! Where have you been my entire trip?

And, speaking of Latin, my inner Latin scholar is tickled pink by the inscriptions, though slightly disappointed by the translations (and if you don’t think I have an “inner Latin scholar,” you haven’t been paying attention). As for the cache, I liked it so much…

I needed a bed, and that right soon. As you may have noticed however, while this county is number 469, I have been to 470. There was one more county between me and the holy borders of Texas, and that final county would be…
