    I was in Dallas for a few days last week, and we took a drive up to Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

    Here are some photos I took there. It was such a pretty place!

    We went on a hike through an area called "The Narrows."

    Thank you! It was a beautiful place. Our drive up from Dallas was entirely flat plains... and then the the hills started coming into view. I wasn't expecting it to be so pretty.

    I'm pretty sure it was because the path was surrounded by large rocky canyons. There were a few signs along the way saying "no rappelling" and once we came across the rocks and river, it was obvious why :rofl1:
