While on our spring break GSA trip we stopped at Little Sahara State Park in Waynoka, OK.  Little Sahara is a big sand pit in the NW OK.

Due to spring break and the high volume of ATV 4 wheelers and dune buggies, we didn’t actually get to go out on the sand dunes, because it was unsafe.  The park is building an observation deck but aren’t done with it yet.  There was a patch of sand near the park office so the girls could play in the sand.

Our next stop was the sod house in Aline, OK.  The house was built in 1894.  It was still being used for storage in 1963 when the state historical society aquired the house.  They built a three sided shed to go around it.  In the early 1980’s the state built a fully enclosed structure to protect it.  Here’s the website if you want more info http://www.okhistory.org/sites/sodhouse.

The museum also has a huge shed of farm implements.

    My boys were probably the dangerous ones out driving around in Little Sahara! You’ve gotten to see some interesting sights lately!
