Travel Trip-Oklahoma Panhandle

In this April 15, 1935 file photo, a peaceful little ranch in Boise City, Oklahoma where the top soil was being dried and blown away, is about to be engulfed in a gigantic dust cloud in the Oklahoma Panhandle. Before becoming a part of Oklahoma Territory, this strip known as No Man’s Land was a haven for outlaws and land squatters. Later, during the Great Depression, severe drought and blinding dust storms turned the region into the Dust Bowl. The strong survived, and today the Panhandle of Oklahoma is made up of dedicated ranchers, a growing Hispanic population and awe-inspiring views of rural life at its finest. (AP Photo, File)
