Skywatch Friday – Rainman Revisited


A few weeks ago after dropping Logan off at college I revisited the small Oklahoma ghost town of Cogar. It’s claim to fame is that a scene from the 1988 Movie Rainman was filmed here at a local gas station. The film stars Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. I can’t believe that it has been 33 years!!


The gas station is still standing, kind of, and it looks like a brand new sign is up. Cogar has become somewhat of a mecca for bloggers, instagrammers, and camera bugs. Abandoned stuff is big these days.


I posted about it last January. Nothing much has changed.


Logan is out of college now so I may never visit this place again.

In other news this week, Heather had a birthday, so the three of us celebrated with a hike among the venomous snakes of Turkey Mountain. We didn’t see any. I always get the feeling though they could see us.


And closing with a drone shot up over my back yard.

I’m linking with Skywatch Friday. Come join the party!!

    Nice to see the ghost town of Cogar. I can imagine it filled with activities. Wonderful way to celebrate Heather’s birthday. Just the sign itself will quickly turn me away from the hike. Beautiful sky shot. Enjoy your weekend.

    I would love to see this ghost town but I’ll skip your venomous snake walk. Nah, I probably wouldn’t, but it would make me think twice. Now I’m wanting to see “Rainman” again – it’s been many, many years.
