The park at Sulfur, OK smells like sulfur. We pulled into the parking lot to look at a map we picked up a town or two earlier and rolled down the windows. I leaned out to take a photo of the water fountain and was confronted by this horrendous odor. A couple of boys were riding their bikes across the parking lot while a woman lit a cigarette and walked over to a bench under a tree. I needed to feed my baby but we left the park quickly and drove a mile to the recreation area along the 177.
Sulfur has quite a bit to see and do. Main Street has a variety of antique shops, western stores and I am beginning to sound like the Chamber of Commerce. In September, there is a horse show and antique tractor show. My family in the midwest attends a lot of those. But then, around here, there are a lot of horses and tractors. You could say that Sulfur is best known for its being the Gateway to the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, a place I hope to spend more time at as our boy grows.
The photo was taken at that park using my Nikon.
