Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, Oklahoma

There aren’t a lot of state, national or even county parks near Oklahoma City. We spent an afternoon at a lake south of town, Lake Stanley Draper, and found that it was more of a marina than an actual park. There were few hikes listed on our trail app and even fewer green areas on google maps, so one…

Hike to the elusive Peavine Falls

During the last few days in Oak Mountain State Park, we wanted to hike at least one more of the many trails throughout the park. Of all the trails, mostly named by colors, Peavine falls seemed like the thing to see before we left. We both took an extended lunch break on a hot afternoon, taking water…
