Turkey Mountain in the Rain – Our World


Saturday I went to Tulsa’s popular Turkey Mountain park and did a little hiking. It is never very crowded once you get a quarter mile from the parking lot but what few people there were seemed to vanish when it started raining. The temperature was in the sixties and I didn’t care about getting wet. I did care about lightning so I took the above shot and got away from those powerlines.


The park has a surprising number of ponds (for some reason ponds are lakes on the mountain). Last summer they dried up. It is nice to see water in them.


I spent about two hours and found three of the seven new geocaches in the park and then left. Two hours well spent in my book.

    I always enjoy a good hike on Turkey Mountain with you – even in the rain (to multi-task and find a few geocaches is a bonus).

    Is there a reason why the ponds are called lakes on Turkey Mountain (love that name)? Mind you, having said that, those ponds are pretty big but lakes are bigger – in my book anyway. Sixty degrees in March – wow – over here it’s a case of “ne’er cast a clout ’til May is out”. We actually had a discussion today re. whether it means the month of May or may blossom. Nobody came up with a satisfactory answer-)

    @Leedslass – I’m going to steal your March saying. I’ll give you one in return. In Oklahoma what we say about March is “In like a lion, out like a lamb.”

    No problem – we do have that saying too. However, mine obviously refers not just to March but any time the sun has some warmth and one is lulled into a sense of false security of “removing a vest” and then finding it has to be replaced two days later as “summer is not yet here”. Thus, in England, most unwise to go into lighter clothing until the month of June.
