I take no credit for any of the above images. I located them on Photobucket. Breathtaking in my opinion.

People who believe Oklahoma is flat, Dust Bowl prairies are very surprised when they get east of I-35 and south of I-40, and when they come out here to SW OK. More of the same area the previous pics are from, including one very similar to post #30. I get asked "That's not OKLAHOMA, is it?" a lot.

I agree with you Goodpasture. Don't people know that we are flat and very prone to dustbowls?

My friend told me that eastern OK is very pretty too. I think that many outdoorsy friends I know don't give the plains enough credit for their scenic beauty.
I'm a California boy, born and bred, but as a teenager I used to spend every summer vacation with my aunt and uncle in southeastern Oklahoma, in and around Poteau, Oklahoma (they actually lived on the outskirts of Howe and Monroe, Oklahoma, but I say Poteau because it's on the map). And I must say that eastern/southeastern Oklahoma is a very scenic part of the state -- much more scenic (in my opinion) than the western portion of the state. The area around Poteau is very green and hilly, with a lot of lakes and streams; Wister Lake and Cedar Lake (farther south) are two of the prettier lakes in the area. We used to also spend a lot of time around Monroe, Oklahoma (which is barely a town), and Monroe is nestled in a really lush, green valley at the foot of Sugarloaf Mountain. That area has a real 'backwoods' feel to it -- and the Arkansas state line is just a few miles to the east.

Very pretty part of Oklahoma…..and I miss it a great deal.

Yeah, but if you want a place with a view, by all means go into western Oklahoma. There are no trees, hills or valleys to obstruct your view.

The first picture was what I saw everyday driving into work when I worked at Treasure Lake Job Corps.

That looked familiar, Job Corps Road/Indiahoma Road. It's closing, if not already shuttered... I work right nearby. From that area:

That is so beautiful... when the latest project is done, that may well turn into a stitching...

I am only using the cell camera, but can see the beautiful oranges/yellows but they don't come out the same on the picture.

I was in Norman recently for business. The drive from OKC to Norman was dull, and the flight into OKC also didn't show any of these types of scenery. The people with whom I met also stated that the lakes there are muddy and red. So, is the OKC metro area very far removed from these scenic, cascading hills scenes and lakes of OK posted here?
