..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.


  1. no need to apologize for the low quality, the subject matter more than makes up for it...the rainstorm pics are amazing.don't get to see rainstorms from a distance around here to often.

  2. absolutely lovely photos! and a great outfit to boot!
