So, we'd camped at the Birch Cove COE Campground in order to be within 20 miles or so of the town of Pawhuska, OK. Martha wanted to check out the shooting locations for a favorite show of hers on HGTV called Pioneer Woman.
Ree Drummond, aka Pioneer Woman, is a famous TV personality who shows viewers how to prepare her recipes with a Midwest home-style cooking. She opens her "home" at her family's ranch near Pawhuska to tourist and we were in town at the right time for a viewing.
Rhonda and Andy, friends of ours from the Dallas area, had driven up and met with us at noon today. We went in Andy's car to Pawhuska, found the lunch wait at the mercantile store the Pioneer Woman had restored was almost two hours! So we decided to grab a quick bite elsewhere then headed out to the Drummond Ranch.
Quite the spread, this ranch. We made it there with no issues and the following pics show you a glimpse of the lodge used for shooting the HGTV episodes of Pioneer Woman:
The below pics show one two sumptuous kitchen setups in the lodge, very fancy.
