Oklahoma’s Own Ree Drummond…a.k.a The Pioneer Woman. Ree is a native Oklahoman who just so happened to take a detour while attending college in California before circumstances and just possibly “fate” slapped her back on track in order for her to meet the “Marlboro Man” of her dreams.  Read more about Ree on her website The Pioneer Woman @


“Oklahoma Ducks”

Posted on

Here is a shot of our “Oklahoma” ducks enjoying a beautiful day on the water in the old Botanical Gardens Park.

Although the park was beautiful and I so enjoyed photographing any and everything I could…I know the new park will be just wonderful and will be beckoning myself along with many other photographers to get out and get busy taking pictures! There are so many wonderful people, places and things to photograph, here in Oklahoma…  Until then, I will have many snapshots from days gone by. Happy picture taking!

Although Vinita was not incorporated until 1871, there were a great number of settlers in the area before then. Not far from Vinita, Cabin Creek was the site of a huge Civil War battle. In 1864, Confederate forces captured over 100 wagons, about 720 mules and other goods valued at $1,500,000.  You can visit the battle site, which is open daily.
