Quartz Mountain Resort, Lone Wolf, Oklahoma



As I mentioned earlier, I spent a couple of days in Lone Wolf, Oklahoma, at Quartz Mountain for the first of the five Leadership Arts classes. 

Quartz Mountain Resort is located near the Texas border in the south west corner of Oklahoma in the Quartz Mountain, which is part of the Wichita Mountain range.   I have to say, coming from California, the mountains aren't all that tall - most of the mountains in the range are between 15800 and 2000 feet above the surrounding plains. It is surrounded by trails, and is 1.5 miles from the Quartz Mountain Nature Center.

The resort is on the shore of Altus Lake. Unfortunately, due to our crazy drought, the Lake was nearly 27"low, but it was still quite lovely, and it is slowly rising.  

My favorite part about this resort is that it is the permanent home of the Oklahoma Art Institute

The Oklahoma Arts Institute's home page says: "The Oklahoma Arts Institute was created in 1976 as a private, non-profit corporation dedicated to providing an educational program of excellence in the arts for young people. In 1983, at the request of the parents and teachers of Arts Institute students, a second program was added to accommodate adult artists. The Arts Institute's purpose is to develop artists and arts audiences across the state and the region, improving the quality of life for all Oklahomans."

I'll be writing about my experience at Leadership Arts soon, once I have a chance to process all that I learned. In the mean time, here are a few snapshots of the resort that I took during my stay.
