Last Saturday we made an all-day trip into Oklahoma to attend a fiddle contest and a rodeo. Well, the contest was in the morning, and the rodeo didn't start until evening, so we had a lot of time to burn in between. We went antique shopping (I'll post about my finds later!), got ice cream, and drove out to a nearby state park. Even though none of us had planned (or dressed) to go hiking, we decided to walk a ways on one of the trails anyway. The scenery was stunning!
The boys ahead of everyone else. (of course)
A mysterious cabin hidden in the rocks and trees.
Aren't the rocks incredible?
Look close and you can see a whitetail deer...
The scenery instantly reminded me of Elizabeth Bennet's visit to the lake country!
I'm definately coming back for a regency photo shoot!
A rather wilted, but still beautiful thistle.
In the town there were so many beautiful old houses!
Now for a brief retro western-chic fashion description. :^P
(I apologize for the wrinkled-ness of the pictures. I had been a long hot day and lots of car riding)
Pink fabric hair flower (by me)
Orange ruffle plaid snap shirt by Vanity
Braided leather belt
Western boots by Boulet
Also - I recently aquired a vintage one piece slip. It was very comfortable! (I hate elastic waist slips!)
the rodeo went on until all hours. We finally had to leave about midnight before it ended.....
I personally think all bull-riders must be crazy. You could never get me on one of those bucking animals!
All in all, a very good Saturday.
