  • Gloss Mountains State Park in the Winter ~Fairview, OK

    This place is magic.

    You are driving along in terrain as flat as can be and suddenly there are these amazing buttes right in front of you.

    Totally unexpected and amazing.

    To add to the magic, the day was moody, cold, windy, and ice lingered in spots.

    The sun would suddenly light up the ice making it seem like you were in a different world.

    I could look all day.

    You can hike along the top of Gloss Mountain.

    It is a bit of a climb to get to the top but has amazing views.

    It was also cold and windy.

    At first that seemed like it would make the whole trip uncomfortable.

    But the cold wind and cloudy skies made it even more breathtaking.

    Figuratively and literally 🙂

    This was my girls first time here.

    I did not think we would be able to go because of the steep drops but my husband said we could do it.

    We kept little ones close.

    We told the kids it looked like Elsa had been here…

    It feels like you can see for miles.

    The mud coated our shoes and made it hard to walk.

    It also kept the wind from blowing us off.

    My youngest son climbed up with a GoPro strapped to his head.

    I was not sure about what kind of video we would get but I ended up loving it.

    It is like we are being introduced to his world.

    A world where every sight has to be taken in at once and bouncing is constant.

    I brought a little handheld microscope along so they could look at one of the rocks that give the mountain it’s name.

    It was pretty cool, so sparkly.

    My youngest boy kept his arms in his coat.

    He and his brother thought it was going to be a lot warmer out and were happy to be in the car.

    Little bit thought dropping ice on herself was funny.

    Pretty sure she is trying to lick dad…

    It was an amazing adventure!

    I need to remember to go more often, it is worth the drive.

    We actually stopped at the Little Sahara State Park to check out the sand dunes after we were done.

    I have so many pics though I decided to break it up into different posts!

    Do you have a favorite spot in Oklahoma?
