Red Rock Canyon State Park – Hinton, OK


November 8, 2008 – Red Rock Canyon State Park

Red Rock Canyon Map

This roadtrip was actually just a short day trip taken in November to enjoy the lovely fall foliage.  And we found a ton of that to enjoy, too!  Between having recently getting married and currently in the process of trying to find and buy our first house, we had less than any money to spend on trips.  But this short day trip was just what we needed to satisfy our need of ecploration.

Not knowing exactly what Red Rock Canyon had to offer before we took this trip, we just hopped in the car, found our way to the state park, and explored and hiked for about three hours total.  We did find a ton of fall foliage, gorgeous nature, bugs and insects, lovely lakes and ponds, and lots of rocks to climb and explore.  We really enjoyed ourselves and hope to go back for a more extensive stay!


“In a world we call our home there’s lots of room to roam
Plenty of time to turn mistakes into rhyme
There’s a place for those who love their poetry
It’s just across from the sign that says, “Pros Only”

So if you like a band with a chick singer,
Say your cup of tea is a wall of trombones
If you dig Menudo, or MDC we salute you the way we know
For every one with dollar signs in his eyes
There must be hundreds that look at you as if you’re some kind of

Rhythm section want ad
No others need apply to the rhythm section want ad
I’ll tell you why

Hats off to the new age hairstyle made of bones
Hats off to the use of hats as megaphones Speak softly,
drive a Sherman tank Laugh hard, it’s a long way to the bank

Do you sing like Olive Oyl on purpose
You guys must be into the Eurythmics
For every one with dollar signs in his eyes
There must be hundreds that look at you as if you’re some kind of

Rhythm section want ad
No others need apply to the rhythm section want ad
And here’s the reason why

Hats off to the new age hairstyle made of bones
Hats off to the use of hats as megaphones Speak softly,
drive a Sherman tank Laugh hard, it’s a long way to the bank”
