Witchita Mtns Trip & Photos ~ October 5th 2002.

Wichita Mtns is one of my favorite spots, just north of Lawton Oklahoma and about a 3hr drive from Dallas/Fortworth. This was a day trip with the Fort Worth Audubon. It is a great place to visit, not just for the birds but also for the beautiful scenery and its quietness. This day trip was no exception, it was so peaceful out there, a beautiful early fall day. Every sound was crystal clear and the distant Elk were easy to hear.
We had some nice views of Burrowing Owls, Wood Duck, Red-headed woodpeckers and Belted kingfishers among other common birds. The prairie dogs were very active also, enjoying the nice weather!
No lifers on this trip and none were expected, just a nice day out!

With some great rocky hills for climbing, hikers are rewarded with views of the prairie beyond. This prairie holds wild herd of both Elk and Buffalo.
