TT TAKEN WITH TULSA

Look This Way

WHO DOESN’T VIEW PHOTOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND IMAGINE VISITING SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LOCATIONS IN TULSA? DEPENDING ON THE PERSON YOU ASK, THE ANSWERS COULD BE WILDLY DIFFERENT.

By Lindsey Mills

We were headed to grab a drink and relax outside on a warm evening after work. Our dog, Kona, rode patiently in the backseat, eager to play after her day at work (where she slept in the back room all day long). The sun hadn’t quite set, and as we cruised down Peoria Avenue, an orange glow started to settle on the horizon. I smiled as I gazed at the illuminated skyline.

visiting the Gathering Place. I’ll miss our little house on the corner and the endless list of things we still need to try and see. So why leave? It’s because of what this city has taught me about myself.

Turkey Mountain My self-discovery has unfolded during long runs by the Arkansas River and over meals at locally owned restaurants. As I’ve strived to learn about Tulsa, I’ve learned just as much about my ambitions and desires as I have about where to find the perfect chicken and waffles. I’ve been inspired by the passion of Tulsans serving their community and business owners building their success from the ground up. I’ve talked with those who have spent most of their lives here and those who have landed here after traveling the world. As I’ve written pieces on Tulsa’s story, I’ve begun to see how to better write my own life’s story. So, I move on to the next chapter. However, before doing so, I am sure to linger in this one by taking in the outline of the city each chance I get.

The best views are often ones you have to work for. While the effort required to reach this particular point isn’t tremendous, it will take a bit of a stroll to attain. Pause midhike or run to admire this scene or bring a picnic to enjoy for longer.

The Gathering Place This park lived up to, and in many cases, far exceeded expectations. The park for everyone is a beautiful place to spend the day, release your inner child, and revel in the beauty of Tulsa. What a treasure for all this park indeed is, for what it holds and what it reminds us to be thankful for.
