Our Mini Adventure: Turner Falls

9:42 AMKathryn Curling

 Because my boyfriend works a ridiculously crazy schedule (70 hours a week of split shifts, all days and 1-10's) it's really hard for us to find time to get away to do anything that requires much of a commitment. So when we heard about Turner Falls, Oklahoma we were like : "Hey we can swing that!" It's about a 2 and half hour drive for us so we could knock it out in a day. We headed out at about 1 in the afternoon and arrived at about 2:40.

I'm a super thrifty person so I try to do everything I can to avoid spending an arm and leg. We packed lunches and snacks so it didn't break the bank in the gas or food department. In total it costs us $74 for gas and to get into the park!  Once crossing the Oklahoma border it was gorgeously scenic and tempting to hit up the casinos haha.  We spent the rest of the day swimming in the ice cold river under the waterfall and hiking up this crazy castle to an amazing little peak that over looks the waterfall. It was a very much needed adventure before heading back to school. And of course we took lots of pictures. =)

Had any good adventures lately? Share share! I have to live vicariously through others most of the time haha.

But now, it's back to work.
