    My husband’s work held an event at the Tulsa Zoo!

    We got there right before closing time and then got to stay during that beautiful time of day when the light is getting softer and softer.

    Digging for crystals at the Salt Plains ~Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge

    Monday, June 19th, 2017

    asaltDSC_9771

    You can dig for selenite crystals at the Salt Plains during the summer!

    More info on crystal digging on their site, here.

    Although we have visited the area several times, this was our first time digging.

    asaltDSC_9778

    One of these days I will get to watch a sunrise or sunset here.

    It is on my “bucket list”.

    I am not organized enough to write it down, I just keep telling myself someday.

    asaltDSC_9785

    I was not sure before we got there if the kids would actually enjoy doing this but they were crazy about it!

    I should have guessed.

    They think looking for rocks in our yard is exciting.

    asaltDSC_9787

    They kept yelling “we’re rich!!!!”

    asaltDSC_9798 asaltDSC_9804 asaltDSC_9815 asaltDSC_9818 asaltDSC_9840 asaltDSC_9857

    You will get muddy so be prepared.

    And it was crazy windy!!!!

    asaltDSC_9861

    Shortly after I took this pic Little Bit smeared the mud all over her legs…

    asaltDSC_9868

    Treasure!

    asaltDSC_9873

    She was super proud of how muddy she was, until it started drying…

    asaltDSC_9877 asaltDSC_9894 asaltDSC_9910

    You will need a shovel and plenty of sunscreen!

    asaltDSC_9950 asaltDSC_9953

    There are several overlooks around the refuge.

    asaltDSC_9956 asaltDSC_9961 asaltDSC_9973 asaltDSC_9990

    We went on the wildlife drive in the refuge and I was surprised when we did see quite a few egrets.

    Usually we like to go on these at dawn and dusk since that is when more animals are out and about.

    asaltDSC_9992 asaltDSC_0015_01 asaltDSC_0032

    They have some easy hikes that you can go on in the refuge also.

    We played at the beach in the Salt Plains State Park also.

    It has a really nice sandy beach but the waves were pretty intense and the water was very dirty looking.

    Not sure if it was windier than normal or not.

    I did not take my camera swimming with us so not pics from that except on my instagram account.

    I did take my gopro so maybe I can put a video together.

    asaltDSC_0079

    I saw this pretty lake on our way to the salt plains and wanted to be sure to stop and take pics on the way home.

    asaltDSC_0104_01

    Nick stayed in the vehicle with the kids and I walked down to a boat ramp to take pics.

    asaltDSC_0113

    It was so peaceful after so many hours in the vehicle with 5 kids.

    If you have kids that like to treasure hunt than you should check out crystal digging at the Salt Plains!

    It was so much fun and a lot easier than I thought!
