Here's a multi-part slideshow of an impromptu tour of the Oklahoma River, starting just South of the Oklahoma City Farmer's Market 311 South Klein this weekend. http://okcfarmersmarket.com/ and ending on South Walker. It includes what happens when a walk ends there, and other points of change and interest in between.

Walking is an underrated, highly entertaining cheap date and can be as long or short as need be. Everyone already knows about walk the zoo...which is pleasantly immense and clever on a budget. ( You did see there is a party today for the new Indian Rhino baby at the OKC Zoo). http://www.okczoo.com/

Mapquest says a trip "as the crow flies" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/As_the_crow_flies was 1.4 miles. ( this would be some of the distance along the Oklahoma River, but would not include the walking to and from some point of "civilization".... some known landmark.

This trip was clearly longer than that, probably 5-6 miles round trip measured from my office.

Most Americans ONLY walk 1.4 miles in a week all told. Here are some health numbers that might be incentive. http://walking.about.com/cs/howtoloseweight/a/30minaday.htm

Oklahoma City weather has been ridiculously pleasant in the last few days. Pelted by heavy rains, washed by flash floods http://www.examiner.com/article/okc-national-weather-service-says-watch-.... Temperatures have been under 90 easily and down as much as the low 70's midday. Right now, it is only 80ish, at 11am. Unheard of in Oklahoma. http://www.srh.noaa.gov/oun/
