(Osage Hills State Park on a lovely fall day in 2007.)
I can't get the idea out of my head now, so I've been doing some research online. Cabins in local state parks seem reasonably priced. (I'd go whole hog and pitch a tent if I didn't hate sleeping on the ground so much. I'm not much of a roughing-it type of gal.) They have kitchens, bathrooms, fireplaces, and beds, so I could very easily just disconnect for a couple of days. I could eat oatmeal in the mornings, go for a walk just after, come back and paint or make jewelry or do something totally new, then have lunch, take a paddleboat on the lake, come back for more art, eat dinner, and crochet in front of the fire until bedtime. How wonderful does that sound? I'm currently trying to find info on staying at Osage Hills State Park near Bartlesville (north of Tulsa) because it's the prettiest state park I've never stayed in. It has hiking, boat rentals, beautiful scenery, and eight cabins.So, who's with me? It would be a lovely way to spend an early-spring weekend.
