Sulfur, Oklahoma

25 Jul


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.

    Where my sister in law lives there is sulphur in the water. They say you get used to it, I say don’t think so. It can be treated by water softening equipment, I think. I would have shot that photo through the glass 🙂
