As we were driving toward our destination we passed a small town that claimed it was the birthplace of two celebrities: Anita Bryant and Clark Gable. It seems both were born in Barnsdall, Oklahoma.
We continued on to Osage Cove Park on Kaw Lake near Ponca City, Oklahoma. We would call it home for two days. Luckily we arrived at a slow time for the park so we had our choice of the 94 sites. We chose one overlooking the lake.
The first night we saw a portion of a beautiful sunset, but alas, there were too many clouds and they hid the red hues we could see in a few areas.
From the garden we drove a short distance to the Pioneer Woman Museum. The museum was closed, but we had already seen a portrait gallery in the Marland home of the recipients of the Pioneer Woman Award.
