It’s Reopened- Time to Take a Trip Up Mount Scott!
Yesterday Kelso and I decided to take a quick lunch break and head to the mountains. It's been forever since I've driven through the refuge, not to mention up Mount Scott. All the road repairs have been completed and Mt. Scott is officially reopened. We made a quick stop, grabbed some lunch, and headed to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge for a short break. It's a great way to get a little R&R in the middle of the workday.
Let’s Hit the Trails in 2021
If like me you're bored to death and looking for something, anything to do I may have a solution.

Well after we starting listing "things to do" hiking came up and everyone agreed we'd hit the trails. It's the perfect weekend activity and will get us all outdoors and moving!

The Holy City of the Wichitas could be closing due to financial challenges. The Holy City operates and is open thanks to donations from visitors and of course a lot of those visitors come for the annual Easter pageant "The Price of Peace."

The Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge Is The Perfect Day-cation Getaway!
This past weekend the family and I where looking for something to do so we decided to take a little trip to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. It's been awhile since we've been out there, plus the weather was perfect for a quick hike and picnic. Before we hit the road we checked the TravelOK app to plan our attack and we even found some new places we've never visited before.
