The weekend of May 29 to 31, Sue and I spent 3 days in South-central Oklahoma around Sulphur OK, and enjoyed the beautiful country there. I have lived in Oklahoma all of my life but had never been in this scenic area before. Sulphur is home to the capital of the Chickasaw Nation and the Chickasaw Cultural center. The Chickasaw National Recreation Area is nearby and is the boundary between eastern woodlands and western prairie. Twenty miles away is Davis Oklahoma and scenic Turner Falls, the largest waterfall in the state at 77 feet. We will return again. It is well worth the trip.
Rock Creek runs through the park with many opportunities for swimming and fishing.

At the base of Turner Falls is a lovely swimming area. Sue enjoyed the water.
