Last weekend, my lady and I decided to finally make it over to the Wichita Mountains for a camping getaway. And guess what?! It rained for like 9 hours. MERIT BADGE EARNED! Honestly though, the gloomy weather made for a more relaxing trip. On our way up the Wichita's we accidentally stumbled upon the cute little town, Medicine Park. Who would've thought such a cool place could be hidden somewhere like Oklahoma? If you have never been there, do yourself a favor and check it out. Cute shops, waterfalls, and even a Santa sighting are just some of the things you can expect to see there. After we left Medicine Park we headed over to Mt. Scott to see what all the hype was about. Foggy conditions made for a beautiful view. Following the beast of a hike, we set up camp nearby and survived a cold and rainy night. As much as it did suck we had a great time, and we plan on going back soon.
The Wichita Mountains are a perfect place for anyone trying to escape the real world for a day or two. Looking back I'm glad the weather sucked, in a way it made for a better camping trip. A little birdie told me that there may be a possible Tree and Leaf camping trip to the Wichita's soon. Well Dusty, get your sh$% together, because I want to go back soon.
