    Tulsa/Broken Arrow, OK

    I'll be spending Saturday night in Broken Arrow, OK, and have an appt. there at 4pm, but before that and after that I'll be free. After check-out on Sunday I'll be completely free.

    Any suggestions on interesting/fun things to do in the area? I'm up for pretty much anything and have zero plans (except for the aforementioned appt.) so suggestions are welcome.

    The Gilcrease Museum is very impressive, or was, as I have not been there for over 20 years. The Rolls Royce bobtail sportster impressed me greatly as did the incredible varitey of Southwestern art.

    If you are mobile, a trip down to the Tenkiller Lake Region is always fun and the Illinois River is beautiful any time of the year.

    My family used to vacation in the region of the Tenkiller Lake Dam, as it was the only place in Oklahoma (at that time) you could go trout fishing as the discharge waters from the bottom of the lake are cold enough for the trout to live.

    On your way back home, don't forget to hit Broken Bow and Beaver's Bend State Park. In fact, you should take the Talamina Scenic Drive back to Texas; it runs along the ridges of the Ozark Mountains just inside the state border.

    Have fun!

    I once spent the night in the back of my dodge Omni near Tulsa because my car had broken down and the tow-truck guy couldn't sell me a battery because it was Sunday. (Evidently, somewhere in the Bible it is proclaims that, contrary to the laws of physics, electricity cannot work on the sabbath.)

    During the night a pack of wild dogs started a fight just outside of my car. I had the hatchback cracked because it was so hot, but I had to close it to keep from getting turned into dog food. I didn't get much sleep.

    I still don't like Oklahoma.

    Yep, I'll be in the car with a NuArc and my 4x5 camera in the back and a lady friend in the passenger seat.

    -----we'll see if she truly means it when she says I can stop and photograph as much as I want to

    I suspect that she is sincere but, without a clue. That is, she means it but she doesn't realize the implications.


    I've been through Tulsa few times. Beautiful place. Enjoy.

    There's the International Photography Hall of Fame at the Kirkpatrick Center in OKC. If you have time - usually worth a visit.

    Yep, I agree which is why upon the suggestion from David Brown at lunch (he twisted my arm, I swear) I rented a XPan for the weekend (4 days, one day rental fee!) to photograph with instead of taking the 4x5.

    At the Gilcrease museum, be sure to see Thomas Moran's heroic painting of the "Mt. of the Holy Cross". The way he handeled the light and shadow in this masterpiece done for the World Expo in 1875 is totally fantastic.
