It's been a while but I am back. There has been so much going on and so much stress in my life lately that I just had to get out and away for a bit and commune with nature. So, Sunday morning I skipped church and went for a real hike in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Lawton, Oklahoma. I had a wonderful hike even though the temperature was 102° and still climbing when I got off the trail and back to the car. (It was 108° when I got back home to Texas!)
This sketch was done at Post Oak Lake. While I was there I heard several large splashes in the lake below my rock perch but I couldn't see what it was -- I finally saw it was a Kingfisher fishing for lunch. Pretty cool. Other than the Kingfisher, I saw lots of bison, longhorn, some lizards and prairie dogs. Not much other wildlife though - they all had the good sense to be resting in the shade.
