On State Hwy. 123, 12 miles southwest of Bartlesville, Oklahoma
This lovely 3,700-acre property in the rugged Osage hill country was acquired in the 1920s by Frank Phillips, cofounder of Phillips Petroleum Company, for a wildlife preserve and a family retreat. Now owned and managed by a foundation created by Phillips, Woolaroc (woods, lakes, and rocks) is open to the public. On the grounds are a world-renowned museum established by Phillips, the Native American Heritage Center, and the rustic but spacious lodge where the Phillipses entertained the nation’s leaders and celebrities.
The museum, which portrays the story of man in the New World, contains 55,000 items from prehistoric times through the middle of the 20th century. Its displays of Native American blankets and Navajo and Plains jewelry are outstanding. A permanent exhibit of Western art (one of the world’s finest) includes paintings, sculptures, and other works by Frank Tenney Johnson, Charles M. Russell, and Frederic Remington.
Next to the museum is the Native American Heritage Center, a longhouse with exhibits illustrating Native American culture and achievements. From the center the Enchanted Walkway leads to the 11/2-mile-long Thunderbird Canyon Nature Trail.
Open Tues. – Sun. Memorial Day–Labor Day; Wed. – Sun. year-round. Admission charged.
Some people like to travel by train because it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of an airplane.
I think my pilot was a little inexperienced. We were sitting on the runway, and he said, “OK, folks, we’re gonna be taking off in a just few—whoa! Here we go.”

A man knocked on my door and asked for a donation toward the local swimming pool. So I gave him a glass of water.

Just found the worst page in the entire dictionary. What I saw was disgraceful, disgusting, dishonest, and disingenuous.
