July 9, 2011 Mystery Family Road Trip: Red Rock Canyon
The summer days seem to pass so quickly. Knowing how fast it all seems to fade, today we took the kids on a Mystery Road Trip. It was not a mystery to us, but we kept the destination from the kids. All they were told was to wear good walking shoes. They couldn’t stand the suspense. I did tell the boy that it was going to be a park, but not an amusement park. Instead it would be a natural one that God made.
When we were leaving the park, just before 1:00 we saw the temperature at a bank. It was registering 108. We were glad we got that early start BEFORE the heat of the day. Everyone agreed that we need to go back and camp, but not during the summer. They had many camp areas, picnic tables, even cabins that could be rented. They also had a pool for campers to use. If you are ever heading west of OKC on I40 I would highly recommend the stop at Red Rock Canyon. It is about 5 miles south once you exit the interstate (at exit 101).
