Last year I had some time to go visit some family in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. My aunt was kind enough to show us a cool place called the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Its a nice little piece of forest that was a lot of fun to visit and well worth the drive. While we were there I was able to snap a couple good shots to remember it by. These are some of my favorites.
The first place we stopped was a lovely little park where we had our lunch. To get there, you have to wonder over the Lincoln Bridge. It just seems almost out of place in the wilderness of the park. Its a beautiful bridge that reminds you of a different age. Lincoln Bridge - Chickasaw Park
As I was snapping photos of this, I turned around and noticed the scene behind me. I had completely overlooked it while admiring the bridge. It looked like a scene from a fairy tale. Just a peaceful little pond fed by a small waterfall. I would have loved to stay there longer.
There is so much more to explore in this park, but I will leave you with the last surprise we found as we were leaving. Hiding in a deserted parking lot we found this little guy. We did not see his mother, but she must have been close by. It was a wonderful way to end our visit.
That's it for now, but I will be back when I have more new photos to share.
