Our World – Oklahoma Countryside

Mounds, Oklahoma Building

Sunday morning, before anybody got up, I ventured out to do some geocaching out of Town. I went through the city of Mounds and stopped to take a photo of this building which looks to be unoccupied at the moment.

Mounds, OK Mural

What got my attention though was this mural on the side of the building. I checked out the web site and it looks to be not very active right now. It was state sponsored organization and I imagine that funds got cut. But the mural survives and I love the handprints.

At a nearby cemetery I found this little angel. I like hanging out in graveyards. I get a sense of peace there.

Mounds Gravestone

I found this really old marker. Eliza A.N. What’s up with just initials for a last name. 1822-1907 – A lot happened in the world during that time. A mystery!! I tried googling a little bit but couldn’t find anything.

Graveyard Fence Crosses

Here we had three crosses put up on fenceposts. Some sort of trinity type thing. I think this is fairly recent.


Close by a long forgotten hibiscus is growing up among poison ivy.

Anyway, that was my little outing. I’m linking with Our World Tuesday.

    I like the handprints too, love that they are of many colours. Same here, I like going to the graveyards for peace and quiet. I also look at the dates on the gravestones and imagine the stories of their lives. I love these kind of outings, you see and find “little” things.

    When I see a building like that, I like to wonder what sort of people used to be there and what sort of activities happened within its walls. I’m curious about the old headstone that you found. It’s interesting that only initials were used for the last name.

    I love your little outings and geocaching give you plenty of reasons and opportunities to explore your world. It’s been too long since I just grabbed my camera and said, I’ll be back later…much later. I need to do that soon. Have a blessed week.

    A nice outing with some fantastic photos. I like the headstone and I find cemeteries interesting to walk about and read the headstones. I’m always amazed at how long ago some of these people walked the earth. I find it so peaceful waking there. Have a wonderful evening!

    Alan – fascinating what you can find on a little ride out. My favorite is the hibiscus among the poison ivy. Pretty symbolic, if you ask me! Enjoy the rest of your week!
