We decided that after such a busy week and so many car issues that we needed to get away Sunday after church. My car needed a good test run anyway to make sure it was all fixed. It was good in town, but a trip up the mountain would be a true test!!
No matter what, it’s always a good afternoon trip. There’s so much beauty all around. I love the animals. I went out there when I was very pregnant and scared everyone by getting as close as I could to the buffalo for a picture. Now, it’s not only me doing it, but the baby I was then pregnant with!! Miss K just loves getting out and getting pictures. Now it’s ok to get out, but we like to get close!!
There were motorcycles all up and down the road. When we got to the top of Mt. Scott, it was full of bikes!! It seems everyone had the same idea that we did. How could you not with all this right outside your back door!?!? Ok, so it’s behind post, but only takes 15 minutes or less to get there!!
If you’d like to know more about the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, look here to check it out. After a busy full day, we usually go out to eat close to the Refuge. One of our preferred spots is a famous place called the Meers Store & Restaurant. We don’t get by there often on our adventures because they’re just too busy. Of late when we go, we go to Medicine Park and hit the Riverside Cafe. Both places are located right next to the Wildlife Refuge.
If you’d like to see pictures from our day, you can view the slide show or check out the album at photobucket. I promise, the pictures are worth the view!! So, that’s how my family spent their Sunday afternoon. What did you do??
It was pretty hot, but there was a great breeze blowing. Everything was beautiful and there was only a few clouds in the sky. The wildflowers were in bloom, the lakes were full of fish, the buffalo were out and so were the longhorns with their calves.
