Here’s a hint, it’s in the United States.

It’s less than a day’s drive from my home in Dallas, TX.  Any guesses?

O-k-l-a-h-o-m-a, Oklahoma!  OK.

Yeah, actually it’s only about a 3 hour drive and BAM, you are away from it all.  In a highly un-us move we took a completely impromptu trip last weekend.  It kind of went like this,

Me: “Sigh, kids start school next week, sigh.”  “Wish we could squeeze in just one more trip.”

My husband:  “How soon can you be ready to go?”

Me: “Go where?”

My husband:  “Broken Bow, OK”

Me:  “10 minutes yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee”

For awhile we’ve been interested in finding an easy getaway to enjoy the outdoors and disconnect from our daily life in the city.  We wanted water access, trees, quiet, stars at night, hiking options and easy to get there and home in a weekend.  Consider that list checked!  Yes, it’s way better than OK, it’s amazing.

Happy Labor Day everyone.

P.S. For the Casons, here’s our nod to Goldsworthy……turned out a little more Olaf though.

But you know our inspiration was truly about “the rivers and the tides” (hee hee hee hee)

    I want to go to here and build a rock Olaf too. What’s with the second hill country? I thought OK was flat!

    The pictures are worthy in themselves to give me a meditative trip.
    Thank you both,
    Mom
