2011/302: Sulphur, Oklahoma

The kids didn’t have school this past Monday, and Greg took the day off work. I had just gotten some Oklahoma travel guides in the mail, including Oklahoma Fall Foliage Tours.
A long week-end, and the possibility of fall colors…. the perfect excuse reason for a little getaway!
Our first stop was the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, just south of Sulphur.

Yes, the water did have a certain smell to it, but it wasn’t too bad.

  1. Looks like it was a beautiful day to look for fall colors. Beautiful shots. I especially like the acorns. Acorns fascinate me for some reason. Maybe I was a squirrel in a previous life. 😉

    • Aww, I wish I had known that, I could have sent you some more…. unusual ones. I took pictures, and will have them on the blog in the near future.

    • Thanks, Becky. The weather was beautiful for the most part (got flooded out of two hotel rooms – second one was directly below the first one – and had to change hotels at 7pm on the first day), and it was nice and warm in the afternoons. The mornings were chilly, but not too bad.
      Trade you some warmth and sunshine for your cold and snow 😉

    • LOL close! I think they did have fun when we were out of the car, but when we were driving, Melissa either had her head in a book or her DS. At least Sara spent some time looking out of the window.

  9. Nice photos. The light looks really special. Don’t you love the way the green recedes on some leaves? They look so interesting.
