Wild Oklahoma

Yesterday, Adam and I strapped our bikes to the car and drove out to the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge.

It's almost 60,000 acres of hiking trails, mountains, desert, and so much wildlife, free to roam.  We mapped out a route, and we took off...It was such a gorgeous day! 

We planned to ride our bikes to the top of Mt. Scott, climbing 2,646 feet on a steep winding climb up the mountain.  As we approached the mountain I told Adam I just might not be able to make it to the top...but with a little encouragement and some hardcore pedaling, we made it, and I felt on top of the world! 

  We had the best day ever...the ride down was exhilarating...on the brakes and sailing...We rode all over the eastern section of the park, saw buffalo grazing, prairie dogs popping up everywhere, beautiful lakes...and after cycling up a mountain, and 20 + miles of touring, we were tired and hungry.  Chick Fil A ...Nothing could be more satisfying.

Best day in a long time.  It will become a weekly favorite.
