Wally Is That You?

Greetings Cowboys,

This week Wally got out and about to visit a place that’s kind of like Oklahoma weather – hot and cold at the same time.

I, for whatever reason, can’t remember the name of the place, though. Wally, being the pal he is, said he left the two-word name somewhere in this memo. Hope you find it.
