Sunshine and warmer temperatures could not have come at a better time. I don’t know about you, but cold, gloomy days leave me feeling a little stagnant. I feel lethargic, unmotivated, unsure of myself, and just a little lost. Winter blues are the worst. I am so thankful I live in a state with changing seasons. As soon as I begin to feel the effects of winter, spring peaks its head out.
At the first sign of sun, The Carnivore and I loaded the truck and headed to the Wichita Mountains. We could not have timed it more perfectly. We were greeted by buffalo as we arrived in the Wildlife Refuge, and made our way straight to the trails.
We spent 2 hours or so hiking around the summit of Elk Mountain. We ate our lunch and looked over the herds of buffalo below.
We came off the mountain refreshed, rejuvenated, and feeling just a little bit better than when we started.
