Mountain Park WMA. How 'bout you show us your stomping grounds!
Here are a few from green country
taken recently around tenkiller lake area
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.
Looks a whole lot like North Texas.
I'm an outsider. For me, the times I've been in Oklahoma was all about the people, not the landscape.
Here's a couple. The first from the Wichita Mountains and the second from Cimarron Co.
Colorado is my home ground, can't beat IMO!
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:
Great pics amigos Thanks for showing what Oklahoma looks like!
North Canadian River?
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.
Huckleberry bush behind the house.
Where I camped during the 2010 O-jam near Stillwater.
Here is my hammock and hootchie at the O-jam
A spiderwort plant in the woods behind the house.
One of the biggest oaks on the hillside behind the house.
More behind the house.
Old oil field trail.
Keystone lake where the cimarron rivers comes into the old Mannford townsite. Should have been lots of water.
Thanks for the pics! simply beautiful.
I need to gets some photo's my next trip into the woods.
I live inbetween Claremore and Owasso on the "ridge" off hwy20, beautiful country out here. I grew up in western Osage county (Fairfax) and it was beautiful out there aswell, I miss those rolling hills.
Last Sunday we went to Glass/ or aka Gloss Mountain to look for a few geocaches.
And it looked like this:
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
Beautiful country folks! Anyone got any pictures around the Ponca lake area? What does it look like there? tried googling it but didn't find anything.
Well guys, being two thousand miles away from home, mind if I bump this up witha request for more photos?
i dropped my camera; it took 3 pictures and died. Unfortunately those were job site not camp site.
I too would like to see more okie camp pictures but you dont need to post them here if you dont want to. just post them!
What about oregon Will, what does it look like?
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.
From the panhandle to broken bow lake there should be something for every body. if they can stand the heat. wish i had pix of the big ceder lake area. wow
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.
Here's a few pics of the Wichita Mountains
Bumping this thread with hopes of more pictures of our beautiful state.
