Location: Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge - Lawton, OK
Trails: Charon's Garden, Crab Eyes
I got up early and drove to Oklahoma. I needed a change of pace and a little adventure, and this location provided both of those things. I parked at the Sunset area and hiked the two trails that share the same beginning. Charon's Garden was lovely, but I got confused and turned around at the boulder field. I'll go back once I investigate the trail a bit more, I was mostly winging it today. The Crab Eyes trail was a nice surprise in variety. It starts going through the woods and over a few creeks and ends with a gentle climb and decent through fields and rocks. I didn't spend much time in the park, but plan to go back. Here are some photos from the day. Enjoy!

Positives: I found maple trees, the sun was shining, the breeze was blowing, spring wildflowers were everywhere, and there were very few people
Negatives: Charon's Garden is a little confusing at the boulder field
