- Teacher who care! and show it :)
- Professors who are your greatest cheerleaders and are amazing at it
- Classmates who help you everystep of the way
- Winter break! (Only 85 days away)

- Bring a snack and a drink
- Bring notebook and pencil
- Bring a jacket, it can get cold in our classroom
- Bring a calendar, it helps with the short classes
- Bring an open mind! Yes you will feel over loaded, but others have done it before you, and will after you.

If you ever go to the site grab a map and info guide. They are really great!
Here is part of the hike out to the site. It was beautiful being in nature that isn't disturbed by humans.
On our hike I found a coyote track... I think it is a coyote track anyways.
This is Moses. He is the grandson of a survivor of the Washita Battle.Artsy shot of Moses while he was talking. He has so many interesting stories.
Also at lunch he sang two songs for us. It was wonderful to hear a long forgotten language.
Lastly I wanted to leave everyone with something that a child wrote. "Remember the Horses." If you don't know that it means google Washita Battle and read what happened to Black Kettle and his clan.

Welcome to Sulphur Springs, Oklahoma. Yes, it smells like its name. It was so beautiful here. The photo above is the Pavilion Spring. It use to be called the "7 Sisters"
This is a close up of the flow. Our ranger emptied his water bottle and filled it up with this water. I am NOT that brave.
This is Jennifer with our project for the day. We made a mini world, and artesian well. It was sponge, straw and bag with tape!
This is the Vendome Well that flows down to form wading pools. It has a STRONG sulfur smell, and taste according to others.
On our way up the hill on one of the hikes we saw students working. This is a group from the area with SCC, Student Conservation Corps. They help to keep the parks and reserves looking nice and safe!
Tomorrow we are off the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge!
