Muskogee, OK to Poteau, OK

Recommended Posts

Took my new A2A Piper Cherokee (courtesy of the IRS) on a short hop from Davis Field (KMKO) in Muskogee, Oklahoma to Robert S. Kerr Airport (KRKR) in Poteau, Oklahoma.  Taking in the views of the rivers and mountains that make up Eastern Oklahoma.

It's a nice area to fly around, the Arkansas River Valley!  Lived there all my life, between the Ozarks and the Ouachitas.  One cool little note about a couple of your screenshots:  Cavanal Mountain is actually technically a hill... but not just ANY ol' hill.  It's the tallest hill in the world!  From the link:  "Cavanal Hill is boasted as the world's highest hill at 1,999 ft above the surrounding terrain."  Apparently, 2,000 ft or higher above surrounding terrain and it'd be promoted, but no such luck for our little big hill :)

 

Very nice shots!  I fly around here in the sim ALL the time!
