While the rest of the Internet has fully embraced fall, southwest Oklahoma can’t seem to make up its mind. Some days don’t get above 50°F and others we’re still seeing high 80’s. So when we found ourselves with a warm day, we headed straight for the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge and checked out Kite trail!
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?
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 Elk Mountain trail.
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.
No visit to Montreal is complete with a hike up Mount Royal!
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.
Did you know that Montreal is 375 years old this year? There’s been all sorts of celebrations and events in honor of the anniversary. My friends met up there for a long-overdue girls’ trip to check out the city! First stop? Old Port!
