We made one last trip to the mountains this year before it started getting a little cold.
It was the weekend after they got the fire out. There was a huge fire in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma. When I say huge, I mean, I think it burned over 40,000 acres. That's quite a bit of land.
After doing a short search I came across this photo, which I did not take.
Credit for this goes to this photosteam.
Looks like it's the view of a piece of the area from Fort Sill.
Here are a few photos that I did take.
The first few show what most of the ground looked like as we were driving. It's insane how a fire can hit one side of the road, and not the other... or go in a complete circle, but miss a 5x5 patch in the middle.
This past summer has been fairly bad with fires in the southwest.
Usually we spot lots of buffalo. This trip, we only saw a few. The rest must have been in hiding!
But, there were plenty of longhorns.
And you can't forget the prairie dogs!!
I leave you with a photo of me.
Lets ignore the fact that one of my shirts was pulled down oddly too much in the back. hah.
