A Day on the Appalachian Trail

My dad and sister and I flew to West Virginia last week to take care of family business. After that, I took the opportunity to hike trails much different from what I have around home.

Tuesday after work a friend and I caught the bus into Windsor, Ontario. After a five minute and $5.00 ride under the river via the … Continue reading

Adventures at Beavers Bend State Park

Beavers Bend State Park is just outside of Hochatown, about ten miles north of Broken Bow, in the Southeastern corner of Oklahoma near the Arkansas state line. The Mountain Fork River runs through the state park and is stocked with trout year-round. With the river and Broken Bow Lake, the park is fantastic for fishing. … Continue reading
