Where The Buffalo Roam - Tallgrass Prairie Preserve Near Pawhuska, Oklahoma, in Osage County
The Joseph H. Williams Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is just north of Pawhuska, Oklahoma, in Osage County. It is here you will find the fully functioning tallgrass prairie on the land that use to be Barnard Ranch where actor Ben Johnson, Jr., was originally from. There is 2,500 head of bison roaming freely upon this 39,000-acre preserve. The Nature Conservancy manages this location to help protect the tallgrass prairie ecosystem.
Getting up a few hours before the sunrise, Scott and I rushed to find the right spot so we could welcome the sun. Not sure what we would find to take pictures of, we passed over the cattle guard just in time. We were not able to any bison at that time, but the hopes were high.
We drove along the gravel ranch road looking for the perfect place to show everyone what a tallgrass prairie looked like. As we came over one of the rolling hills, we saw the place we knew would show the life of this amazing landscape. We stopped the SUV and moved quickly.
The morning was cold but warmed up as the sun climbed in the blue sky. It gave a golden glow upon the tallgrass. After watching the sunrise, we climbed back in the SUV and started towards the visitor center. To our surprise, we found the road went downward toward an amazing tree-lined creek where we found a hiking trail. Knowing the visitor center was not going to be open for a few hours, we decided to go for a hike.

While we hiked we were greeted by a few white-tailed deer as they bounded through the woods. Both Scott and I were stunned to find this wooded area. We both had been under the impression that the prairie was nothing but rolling hills and tallgrass, but here we were surrounded by Blackjack and Post Oaks.
The ranch house, originally owned by the family of actor Ben Johnson, Jr., had been left in great disrepair for a long time. However, the building was restored in 1991 to be used as a place of historical significance and shelter for those who worked on the ranch during the roundups of the bison each year. Unfortunately, this was the time of year we arrived and the 2,500 head of bison had been rounded up for their yearly care. We were able to see a stray head here and there, but mostly, we could only see them from a huge distance.
There are so many amazing places to be seen in Osage County and this wonderful example of the beautiful places here. It was a wonderful, chilly morning for us exploring the area. There were surprises all around us and we do hope you enjoyed traveling with us.
Safe travels and remember to get out and live life outside your box,
Scott & Ren

TULSA AIR AND SPACE MUSEUM-THE GATHERING PLACE-TULSA, OK-EP30
Sue is absolutely the best woman an engineer could be married to! After almost 2 years of travel, I am STILL dragging her to science museums, and she STILL reads all the placards, tries the interactive displays, studies how things work and then discusses them with me during the lunch she made and packed for us! WOW!
This video is a quick one of us visiting the Tulsa Air, Space and Planetarium. We specifically came to Tulsa, OK for the Tulsa National Motor Speedway Nitro Dragster semi-finals, but due to rain, it was cancelled. We came anyway and were pleasantly surprised on how much we love this city. We actually stayed 10 days in Tulsa kicking around.
While biking in near the downtown area, we came across The Gathering Place.” It's a dynamic, interactive, recreational and relaxation public park of enormous scope and vision. We found it while biking and decided to return on foot.
It is a privately funded park that is open to the public, for free. Phase #1 opened in Sept 2018 and cost 70 million of the 430 million dollars actually donated to the parks trust fund. This phase is 66 acres. Phases #2 & #3 are to come, and will increase the final acreage to 100.
The George Kaiser Family Foundation donated 400 million. He took over the Kaiser Oil Company in the 60s and bought the Bank of Oklahoma in the 90s. I love it when people truly spread around the love and fortune they acquired to be enjoyed by the many!
Our quick video here does not do the park justice.
