    This is another great museum on the Oklahoma Museum Network.

    amusDSC_8333

    It has a giant playground outside.

    They have also expanded since the last time we went!

    amusDSC_8365 amusDSC_8366 amusDSC_8369 amusDSC_8372 amusDSC_8376 amusDSC_8381 amusDSC_8388

    They had a workshop area to take apart electronics and build things!

    amusDSC_8392

    Little Bit was not happy about taking apart a toy instead of playing with it.

    The boys really liked it though!

    I let Nick supervise the sharp objects…

    Little Bit does not like loud noises.

    Thankfully we brought her some ear muffs!

    We got to see the Anvil Firing twice!

    Talk about loud!

    So interesting.

    We left for a little bit but came back for the tractor pull.

    athreshingDSC_7647 athreshingDSC_7653 athreshingDSC_7657

    Ford’s are so tough they can pull a whole house…

    The guy who made these gave one to all my kids!

    So nice of him!

    I really enjoyed this event an am glad we drove out to Fairview to go.

    You can see the post I did about the campground we stayed in here, and the other place we visited here.

    Gloss Mountain State Park ~Fairview, OK

    Monday, October 2nd, 2017

    We went to Gloss Mountain State Park 3 times while camping nearby.

    I went to the top with three of the kids Saturday afternoon.

    aglossDSC_7555 aglossDSC_7557 aglossDSC_7559

    She likes to stop in the shade.

    Every hike, she is stopped somewhere in the shade.

    aglossDSC_7575 aglossDSC_7578 aglossDSC_7580

    These views always make the hike up worth it.

    aglossDSC_7594 aglossDSC_7595 aglossDSC_7629 aglossDSC_7630 aglossDSC_7633 aglossDSC_8044

    I could not resist going back that same evening.

    I missed most of the sunset but it was still magical up there.

    aglossDSC_8054 aglossDSC_8063 aglossDSC_8065

    It was close to bedtime so I just took the two oldest up.

    aglossDSC_8069 aglossDSC_8073 aglossDSC_8081

    My younger boy asked that we walk to the end this time(there is a trail on top).

    aglossDSC_8086 aglossDSC_8097 aglossDSC_8120 aglossDSC_8156

    We did not make it to the very end of the trail since we were loosing light fast.

    I always think of a Louis Lamour book called “The Haunted Mesa” when I am on top of Gloss Mountain.

    As the light faded that book seemed to come to life.

    It is not set in this location but reminds me of it.

    So yes, I shared with my boys that I felt like I was going to be transported to another world.

    aglossDSC_8172

    My younger boy analizes everything and let me know that there are other worlds in a way.

    Heaven.

    I miss talks and moments like this, we don’t have them as often anymore.

    aglossDSC_8194

    My favorite hike was the next morning.

    aglossDSC_8210

    We all went up before heading home.

    aglossDSC_8212 aglossDSC_8221

    This place is always amazing.

    Oklahoma skies showing off.

    Trying to get everyone in.

    aglossDSC_8279 aglossDSC_8285 aglossDSC_8288 aglossDSC_8293

    Finally went to the end!

    Also, don’t fall off…

    aglossDSC_8297

    Keep in mind that you are hiking on top of a mesa so drop offs everywhere.

    aglossDSC_8304

    It makes for a beautiful hike though.

    aglossDSC_8309 aglossDSC_8314 aglossDSC_8316 aglossDSC_8321 aglossDSC_8322

    Heading back down! You can actually see our camper in the parking lot below!

    aglossDSC_8324

    Minutes after driving down the road our awning ripped off our rv.

    What would an rv trip be without a little added challenge?

    aIMG_20170924_114533

    If you bend an awning in half it will fit into your rv!

    Good information to know.

    You are welcome.

    Here is a short video of our weekend.
