    I love how diverse the landscape is in our state! I don't have pictures of anything really great looking, all I could find is my campsite spot on my property. I'm around Skiatook lake where the cross timbers starts on the east side. Lots of post oak, black jack and hickory.

    I'm an outsider. For me, the times I've been in Oklahoma was all about the people, not the landscape.

    We were up around Lake Eufaula this May. My wife and son did not want to leave! :)

    Here is a pic of the Lake Eufaula spillway:

    On the way home, we took the Talimena Scenic hwy and my son saw his first wild black bear:

    Last time I was there a couple months back the kayakers were cruising right along. Now it looks like a 9 mile drag from Yukon to Overholser

    ESEE knives grow out of the ground around Tenkiller? It's been 30 years since I was on that lake, I REALLY need to go back.


    Thanks for the pictures. We used to live in the Tulsa area and I drove through Bartlesville into Kansas every week. Got to see a lot of Green Country in those days.

    It is truly a diverse and majestic state. From the waiving wheat to the oak and pine forests. The red clay to the mountains. I love it here!

    What a great idea for a thread. I rarely carry a camera with me in the woods, I may need to next time.

    dangit went back to Stinchcomb (1000 acre wildlife refuge in OKC) and could have snapped some pics of that dry bed with water flowing. I didnt get wet (it was 60/30 temp/ wind)but it felt good seeing it run

    Ponca City (Ponca lake area) is where I grew up... You'll get scenery similar to briarbrow's pics and Muddy Paw's pictures depending on the area....

    I've traveled a lot of the US and Canada, every place is beautiful in it's own ways, some more than others and truthfully it's a personal preference. That being said Oklahoma has a diverse variety of landscape. Eastern Oklahoma has the Ozark foothills, Western Oklahoma has it's flat grassland, we have the Little Sahara dunes, I forget the name but it's in NW Ok where you can dig for the rose crystals. North central is the plains rolling hills with trees spread out. Basically we have a little of everything.

    No matter how many times I move away it always calls me back again.

    I believe you are talking about the Salt Plains Wildlife Preserve in Jet, OK. I rode out there on my KLR three weeks ago from Tulsa....here is a picture.

    While stationed at Tinker from 91-95 I spent a lot of time at Draper Lake camping with friends, but never appreciated the natural beauty of the place. Spent one weekend canoeing on the Tahlequah River and swore I'd be back. From there to the east side of Missouri is my favorite type of woods.

    Thanks for this thread folks. I am on OK for the summer, but have not got out of the city yet. (OK City) Nice to see some scenery here in the forum.

    I must say, I feel very welcomed by the people I've met here. Truly I feel quite at home, and that's a tribute to the friendly people here in OK.
