Because it was our day off. So my cousins and I went for a drive. Destination – Lake Wister in Oklahoma.
Lake Wister is located in the San Bois Mountains on the Poteau River within Ouachita National Forest. The Lake is man-made, constructed as flood control and mitigation/conservation project by the US Corps of Engineers.
The Wister Dam was built in 1948 for flow regulation.
The scenery was just so beautiful and relaxing – the colorful tress, the soft breeze and the peaceful water – that we didn’t mind the heatwave enveloping us in the south this time. My cousin, she was a great travel companion. We always laugh out loud about the things we do and we say. For Life is about living and enjoying the time we have 🙂
