Fun in the Sun

Both of my boys had the day off and my hubby took a vacation day.    So, today we took our annual trip to Flint Creek.    Even though it takes a hour of drive time, this is our favorite swimming hole.    Flint Creek has a water slide and lots of  rock ledges that are safe to jump from.     And.. it’s usually not too crowded on a week day.

If you live in Northeastern Oklahoma and you’re looking for a good swim spot, Flint Creek is located on Highway 412 between Kansas, Oklahoma and Siloam Springs, Arkansas.    When you see the little store called “Twisters”, you know you’re there. 

In the following photos, you will quickly discover that I like to take pictures of the “jump”.   I love to see what crazy mid-air shots I can capture.

I stood out in the creek in the freezing cold water so I could get some video for you.   This video shows how much fun they have at Flint Creek and why we make it a yearly summer trip.   Smile

    I’m trying to find out if Flint Creek is still open? I was there last month and there was a for sale sign and tried calling and the number is no longer in srvc?
