Several years ago, the Alabaster Caverns State Park near Freedom, Oklahoma, got a new modern lighting system. It's a big upgrade over the very old system I remember from when I was a kid. Colton and I finally made the short trip to snap some photos.
The main cavern entrance. It's a long walk with a lot of steps.
The ride back to the main office.
Get up close with a caged rattlesnake in the back office.
Colton and I made a trip to the Little Sahara State Park to see the sand dunes, just south of Waynoka, Oklahoma. There's a new viewing platform with history and interpretive panels, binoculars, and a great view of the dunes. It's handicapped accessible, and looks great.
Don't try driving your street vehicle, even a pickup truck, out on the dunes. Leave that to the specially-equipped.
"I like your emphasis of getting personally involved. Your post is timely for me. The leader of a small catholic college in our small town (7000 population) gave the invocation at Rotary today . . .he asked God to make us grateful . . .and then explained that being grateful moves us to action and giving back to our community. A good thought to contemplate. Thanks for your post."
Being grateful moves us to action.
So if we help each other be more grateful, are we helping our communities?
