Blue River/Hughes Crossing

Cee’s Which Way 4/20/18

For Cee’s Which Way this week, I’m sharing some photos of Hughes Crossing on the Blue River in Oklahoma. This area is just north of Tishomingo, OK. I read that it’s about 2 1/2 hours from OKC, and about the same from Dallas.

We visited back in August 2017 and there weren’t but a couple of people around. I’d never heard of it, but Hubs had wanted to go see it for a while. So I had no idea there was a way to cross the river like this.

This crossing was used by the pioneers over a 100 years ago. People have been using it ever since. It’s pretty darn cool to think of pioneers with wagons crossing at this very spot. I found a little more info about it here. I really couldn’t find much more on the history. Most of the information was about the fishing that goes on there. There’s a monument there that explains more, but I neglected to get a photo of it. ((forehead slap))

This is what it looks like when you first drive up.

Taking the road on the other side. There is a large camping area on this side.

All-in-all it was a pretty cool little trip. I saw something I hadn’t seen before and did something I hadn’t done before. So that’s considered a win!

While there, we came across something odd, which I posted about in another post COB 4/15/18
