42nd State: Oklahoma - Robert S Kerr Reservoir (Oct. 6, 2012)


Finally found a place I like, the Robert S Kerr Reservoir, just wish the weather had been better.  The Sallisaw Creek Park belongs to the Cherokee Nation and it is FREE.  For more photos, click. There was one group of people there, and a couple in a tent, and there were 3 horses grazing in the campground proper.  Love it. 


I highly recommend this spot.  Unlike the Tenkiller Lake, the shorelines were natural and undeveloped.  That’s my kind of kayaking.  Didn’t see another soul on the lake.


Now, pray tell me, how can it get any better than that???


It was a cold and grey day, not great for photos, but I’ll do my best.


My rig, parked along the shore, bathrooms in background.


According to my bird chart, these are American Coots??? 
Never saw one before.


Never saw a Mullen plant going like this.


Biggest lily pad I ever saw.


Taken from shore after I got off the water.  So many kinds of waterfowl, I couldn’t even sort it all out.


This sign was at the entrance and I guess that’s the caretakers house in the background.  I liked the sign.

OK, OK got it’s Swankie Wammie.  On to Missouri.

Who is Swankie?

In 2006, I was shopping for a wheelchair. By 2007, I had new knees, better health and by 2008 a kayak. In Aug 2013, I kayaked my 49th state, Alaska, at the Holgate Glacier and in May 2014, I kayaked Hawaii, my 50th state, to celebrate my 70th Birthday and the finale to the wonderful adventure of Kayaking America? Next up... Solo Hiking the Arizona Trail, 820 miles? Maybe. Still healing from shoulder and trying to decide.
