Oklahoma! O-K!

We explored a few of the parks in southern Oklahoma, searching for changing leaves and beautiful scenery. Here's a photo log of our expedition.

We left home early and made our way to Lake Murray State Park in Ardmore. We had breakfast at the lodge restaurant before taking a scenic drive around the lake.

After leaving the park, we drove an hour to the Chickasaw National Recreational Area in Sulphur, formerly Platt National Park. Unfortunately, half the springs and the beautiful waterfall are dried up due to the ongoing drought. We did get to see some of the springs in action.

The historic Lincoln Bridge.

Pavillion Spring.

Water flow outside of Pavillion Spring.

Hillside Spring.

This was on the trail around the bison viewing area. We didn't see any bison, but did see several deer. We were the only people on the trail, and the deer cautiously watched us until they were sure we were leaving.

The Vendome Well. Husband actually tasted this water. He said it was disgusting and tasted like eggs. We brought a picnic lunch and ate it here before we continued on our drive.

We went over to Davis to Turner Falls State Park. This is the view we usually have (not wanting to spend $12 each in the summer to get down to the waterfall with all the kids on inner tubes).

But, since it's the off season, there aren't many people around and admission is down to $4. So, we went in and took some photos. We saw the most trees changing in this area.
