If you head to far northwestern Oklahoma to an area known as the “Panhandle” you’ll soon discover Black Mesa State Park. It’s home to the most unique topography in the state and is absolutely gorgeous. If you need to clear your head and get away from city life, take a trip to this park that’s literally in the middle of nowhere to enjoy the most serene place in the Sooner State.

Have you ever visited Black Mesa? If so, what did you think about it? For more information, visit the Black Mesa Sate Park & Nature Preserve Facebook page.

Lucky for us, the Sooner State has many retreats and hidden getaways that are perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. One of my favorite places to go for a relaxing weekend is in southern Oklahoma to the charming resort town of Medicine Park at the base of the Wichita Mountains.
