Today we woke to a soft rain that was nice and refreshing. We connected the Jeep and drove through the misty and foggy Ozarks into Oklahoma. It was beautiful to see the all the fall colors as we drove along. We stopped in Checotah and found a Mexican restaurant for lunch. The burro was great, but the beans were so-so.

After our stomachs were full, we drove to Lake Eufaula State Park. Hardly anyone was there, but it was a gorgeous lake with several different campgrounds and marinas. We found several camp sites with 50 amp electric and water that we would love. There might be too many trees to use the satellite dish, but the views of the lake were spectacular! Since this area is within a day’s drive of Texas, we may be coming here again in the future.

Gorgeous colors along the lake.

Tonight is the first game of the World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the New York Mets. It was very fun to be in Missouri when the Royals won a trip to the final series. It reminded us of when we lived in Kansas City and the Royals also went to the World Series.

The path is from our campground down to a nearby lake.
