Grove, Oklahoma. Can’t say I’d ever been here (or even heard of it) but here I am tonight. It’s a short stay as I’ll be home tomorrow evening but I can honestly say I’m somewhat smitten with the area.
It’s tucked into the northeast corner of the state not far from Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas. Nearest town of significance is Joplin, MO. Anyway they have a nice little airport and a quiet little town nestled into some rolling hills with lots of deciduous trees. But the big attraction is the Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, a huge reservoir with more than 1,300 miles of shoreline. I can see why this area is so attractive to vacationers and ever retirees. Boats and homes everywhere on this giant lake. Kinda nice, especially with the swaths of fall color from the turning trees.
