Fall Bucket List Check-In

Happy fall!! I hope everyone is enjoying cooler temps, pumpkin carving, and whatever else you do to live it up in autumn. We only just got cooler weather in past week, but I am so glad it finally arrived. How’s your fall bucket list going?

Hiking Oklahoma: Charons Garden

One of the great advantages of moving west is a change of hiking scenery! My east coast self equates hikes with forests, rivers and mountain views. Here in Oklahoma it’s more cacti and rocks, but we’ve still managed to find some mountain views at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge Charons Garden trail.

Montreal Canal Life

Part three of my series on visiting Montreal might be my favorite! We spent the morning exploring the Montreal canal area. It’s close enough to downtown to walk, but far enough to lose most of the city feel.

Air Power Over Altus: the Altus Air Show

Earlier this month Altus hosted Air Power Over Altus, our base’s air show! Held every three years, it’s probably the biggest event Altus AFB throws. The Altus air show is part festival, part show of skill, part recruitment effort, and part community outreach.

Fall Bucket List

Happy September!! Labor Day’s arrival this weekend always signals one thing: fall is just around the corner! Whether you think autumn represents football, pumpkin spice lattes, back to school, or cozy sweaters, everyone has something they love about fall. I’m looking forward to not sweating every time I set foot outside.

Goals: August

August has arrived in all it’s sweatiness. I’m seriously unsure how people lived in Oklahoma before air conditioning. Confession: going back to the south this month, I was caught off guard by the southern humidity. But then I came back to Oklahoma and I’m sweating at 7 a.m., so who’s to say which is worse.
