Scenic Drive

We had decided today we would take a drive to Red Rock Canyon and Meers, OK. We started off the trip by stopping at Cherokee Trading Post......lots and lots of western stuff to buy. Charlcie, Nolan's sister, bought me a very nice small hand woven blanket that I put under a basket on our dining room table.

This was a mural painted on the side of one of the buildings at Cherokee Trading Post. Very pretty!
Then we were on to Red Rock Canyon. Nolan and I had thought about staying here and I really wished we sewer hookup but they had electric and water. It was so pretty in the canyon. Charlcie wanted some walnuts so they all got out and tried to pick up some good ones.....we'll see!
Then we headed toward Meers, OK, for lunch. The only restaurant there was definitely a great tourist attraction! It was an old store that they had kept building on to turned into a great hamburger place. We had to wait around 45 minutes to get seated. Had a regular cheeseburger and fries and homemade ice cream for desert. Really good. The Meers Burger that most were ordering was huge!

After lunch Charlcie wanted to drive to the top of Scott Mountain. This was taken from the top.....what a beautiful day for a drive!
All along the road to the top of the mountain were these very pretty purple flowers!
Got back to the trailer around 5:00 p.m.......just in time to take the dogs out and Nolan went up to the Casino to make an appearance.....and won a little, very little!

I am so glad to see you guys on the road. Just have fun and enjoy. Tell Nolan it is always good to take a little more from the Casino than what you started with. LOL
