..historical hike..

I ended up having Monday off!  So, we took a short drive south to a town called Heavener whose claim to fame is Runestone State Park, a park showcasing a 12 foot tall viking runestone that is speculated to be dated at AD 600-900.  Mike and I made the short hike down to the stone then back up the long way so we could get some much needed exercise and enjoy the weather.  
We were a bit worried that we might get caught out in the rain when a nice breeze came up and the thunder started rolling in, but by the time we came back up the hill the sun was just beginning to set and we had an amazing view of rain pouring on Poteau Mountain just North of us.  Pink rain was a first for me, it was so cool!  Unfortunately, the camera batteries died before we even got started, so we used Mike's cell phone camera the whole time.  Sorry for the low quality.  But what a great view.  I definitely recommend going up there if you want a perfect spot to watch the sun set or take a short hike or have a picnic. There is even a little playground.

..home on the range..

First of all, I just want to apologize for the infrequency of posts lately.  I have had to reprioritize my time a bit, and unfortunately outfit posts are not topping the list.  Actually it seems like I have been seeing a trend among some of my fellow bloggers having the same issue.  I guess life catches up with everyone every now and then.  
Today the weather was really great.  We get so few of those perfect days in this region so my husband and I took advantage and went for a walk on the family land.  It is kind of hard to believe, but I have lived here for 4 and 1/2 years and this is the first time that I have gone the full length of the property.  It is also a bit hard to believe that I have owened these boots for about 4 months and this is the first time I have worn them.  Hope you enjoy these photos because I really enjoyed taking them.
 This is me at the very farthest part of the land.  Our house is at the top of the hill that is in the background.
We barely made it back before sundown but still had time to stop and say hello to Jupiter on the eastern horizon. All the items I have on are thrifted vintage except for the jeans, they are from Target.  Take care till next time.
