Cherokee County sits in the foothills of the Ozarks. The county seat is Tahlequah (a cherokee phrase meaning-two is enough). Tahlequah is home to Northeastern State University and the Cherokee Nation Headquaters. The scenic Illinois River is great for conoe and rafting. The river flows into Lake Tenkiller. If you have a pic from Cherokee County or the surrounding area post it here with a description. Happy Trails!!!
