Oklahoma’s panhandle area was once known as “No Man’s Land,” but these days it’s rugged alabaster caverns and sand dunes attract men and women alike, In fact nowadays the area is referred to as “Red Carpet Country,” as in “roll out the red carpet” for the thousands of travelers who pass through the state. Here the Black Kettle Recreation Area and Little Sahara State Park are just a few of the wide open spaces that attract outdoor enthusiasts to this Oklahoma. The northeastern region of the state, referred to as “Green Country,” is a land of rivers, lakes, lush green hills and grassy prairies, with the city lights of Tulsa twinkling at the center of it all. In the southwest lies great plains country, a region of short grass prairie where Indian legends are whispered in the shadows of great granite mountains. The central part of Oklahoma is frontier country, and in Oklahoma City the spirit of the old frontier days plays on at the American Banjo Museum and the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, one of America’s oldest nonprofit biomedical research facilities, has received accolades as one of Oklahoma’s best employers, and was given the Oklahoma Psychological Association’s 2004 Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award.
