1st stop–Canton Lake

The first night of our 2011 trip was Labor Day – camped at Canton Lake, west of Oklahoma City. We had a reservation for 1 night at the Sandy Cove campground near the dam on the northeast end. We had stayed there in August 2009 and liked it well enough to stay again.

It was obvious that the lake was lower this year than it had been in 2009.

The video includes photographs from both Karen and me, two time lapse sunset segments and a short “home video” segment of our campsite.
