Life is Uncertain, Eat Dessert First

Good Evening!
Today has been a very long day! Up at 6 am and out at 7 am. Then off to hike for almost 5 miles.
This is our bus for the week. With only 21 people, with driver, its awesome!
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.

This is the Linclon Bridge. It was so pretty looking over the edge into the water.

And introcing Socrates! He is the masscot for Carla's classroom.

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!

Once I got to the top, I was the next to last one :(
From this point you could see all the way to town. The white dot in the top, middle of the green is the water tower for the town.

A few of us were brave (or crazy) enough to walk across the stream. It was cold, but wonderful after the heat of walking. There is another picture of all 5 of us on another camera that I will post later in the week.

Tomorrow we are off the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge!


  1. Sounds like so much fun!

    That water looks so cool and refreshing!
