Sep 30, 2010 Oklahoma Summit

JoAnne Morgan


After our morning hike, we took a fairly short drive of about 100 miles to get to Black Mesa State Park in Kenton, OK – 25 miles of the drive was on a winding dirt road.

Along the way we went through the Comanche National Grasslands, at 3:30 we arrived at the park.

Who knew we would be staying at the highest point in Oklahoma!! Really? Yes, the books say that… and I guess we never knew Oklahoma had ANY summits. When you live in Colorado you get a bit jaded. 

If you blink…you miss the entire town of Kenton however this is an Interesting area –more like desert really…lots of shrub, rocks from volcanic activity, cactus, and flat mesa’s – even a tiny lake, Lake Carl Etling.
