Heart of Tonkawa

I have a fascination with labyrinths going back to the one mown into the grass at St. Kate's where I went to library school. When today's class was over I wanted to tour Tonkawa a bit before heading home, and this is what I found.

The "Heart in the Park" is a cobbled labyrinth in the shape of a heart, built in 2007 to celebrate Tonkawa's place in history as "The Wheatheart of Oklahoma", a distinction of which I was ignorant before visiting this place.

Tonkawa is also home to Northern Oklahoma College. With their "Maverick" mascot, perhaps they'll grant an honorary degree to John McCain someday.
