Wonderland of Frost

Frosted Wonders of Winter

Oklahoma has had a real winter so far this year. Snowed more times than I can keep track of and iced over and all the school’s snow days have pretty much vanished with this year’s abundance of winter weather and road conditions.

I love the snow. I am not so fond of the cold but they sort of go hand-in-hand. I like the white coating of powder and ice and crystals that make our every day worked into something entirely new.

It’s like looking into a real photograph and actually being able to walk through it into another world…like a book, a painting, or a picture come to life. Something you can actually experience. Magical. Wondrous. Different and yet not different at all…

I hope you get to enjoy some of the winter wonderland Oklahoma has been showered with over the last two weeks. πŸ™‚ whether it is with photos, sleds, experiments, or a book and a nice warm fire…Have Fun πŸ™‚

welcome to wonderland...

OKRF 2012 Muskogee, Oklahoma

Carriage ride for His Majesty's Birds
visit OKRF, take a carriage ride.

What would you expect to see at a ren-faire? They call it Renaissance for a reason. I love the carriage rides. they are a great way to see all of “Castleton” in a short, uninterrupted span of time….did I say uninterrupted?

You might find the occasional band of thieves or pirates stop you….then again, your ride could be a stroll through the kingdom as peaceful as you imagined it to be.

"Cast in Bronze"
Maestro of the Carillon

You can hear the “Carillon” (pronounced care-ill-on) which is a unique sound not heard many places….

Cast in Bronze is perfect for those who love unique music, the sound of bells and other such instrumental music.

The Maestro plays in such a unique wave of movement as to entertain you while you listen…stop in at the Castle of Muskogee and hear it for yourself.

The Brother's Dim
OKRF original adult fairy tale theater like you have never seen it before

The Brothers Dimm is another (all together different and…) unique show. I have seen nothing else like them anywhere. Though I do enjoy a good laugh at every show!

Africa's Barbary Falcon
an almost endangered species

Another unique “MUST SEE” show is the Birds of Prey show at OKRF. Β It’s held in the jousting arena twice a day and features a WIDE ARRAY of birds for your enjoyment. Unlike most other educational animal shows, this one features demonstrations that can involve audience participation. That’s part of what makes it great!!! Check out more at the Royal Gauntlet’s blogsite.

There are of course other sites to see throughout Castleton:
