Tulsa in November

On November 6th we went to Tulsa for the night and spend the next Saturday at Woolaroc and the Philbrook.  This was a trip I had been wanting to take since I began this page five years ago. 

Tulsa Weekend-1

I haven't had a lot of time this fall.  No time for myself - no time for anything....  I'm still behind on edits and I'm so tired from the commute from my job I just don't seem to get anything done.  

Tulsa Weekend-1-9

Downtown Tulsa - the last time we were here was in September for the Rob Thomas concert, which was excellent.  

Tulsa Weekend-1-8

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary on the 11th of November.

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency which was nice.

We got up the next morning and went to Woolaroc, which was pretty cool.  I've been wanting to visit this place since 2010 when I learned about it.  

Woolaroc-1

Woolaroc has a wildlife preserve and an incredible collection of Western and Native American art.

The mound builder artifacts was something that I wish I knew was here in 2013 when I was working on my thesis.

I was in awe of these effigy pots.

Incredible -  looking  into the past...

After we left Woolaroc we headed over to the Philbrook.  Next time I go to Tulsa I need to go to the Gilcrease museum.

We made it back to Tulsa later that day.  We really could have spent the day in Bartlesville but we can save that for next time. 

Philbrook -1-4

The Philbrook is a beautiful museum.

It is definitely worth the time to visit. 

Tulsa Weekend-1-11

I'm still behind on everything it feels like but I wanted to put some photos up. 

Tulsa Weekend-1-12

A beautiful mansion filled with priceless art and heritage from around the world. 

Medieval Icon Art -1

Art impresses and amazes me.  Mainly because I don't have the skills to draw and also because I can look back into the middle ages or the Renaissance and see a different world.

This is all I have the energy to do today.
