Black Mesa State Park, Oklahoma…
We travelled to the far northwest panhandle of Oklahoma to hike the highest point in the state. This definitely helped with our bad case of ‘Leo withdrawal.’ Our third and last state park visit was the best. The park is very remote and lots of sites were available to choose from.
Here is the trail cut into the side of the hill. Yes, it was very steep.
Of course, the view made all the sweat worth it. We got an early start and it was a good thing as the temperature soared onto the low nighties with high humidity.
We have never seen grass hoppers this big. Locust on ‘roids!’
