The description states:

Geological sign on summit of Arbuckle Mountains on U.S. 77.

–The mountains are situated in south-central Oklahoma. Because the formation sits atop an aquifer, and drains readily into it through the tilted limestone strata, it is home to over 1000 caves and springs.

This card likely dates from the 1950s.
