I live in far eastern Oklahoma with the Cookson Hills Game Refuge directly behind our house. There is a pretty 8 foot or so waterfall which was my goal. I just wandered around the hollow which is almost a canyon for a couple of hours, following the small creeks.
A meandering creek.
Redbud is blooming.
It isn't an official wilderness, but it has been at least 60 years since there was any wood cut from this area. There is a road on the ridge on the left side.
It stays damp in this area, it is almost a rain forest type environment.
There are quite a bit of limestone rocks along the creek beds.
Look at the size of that log.
This is my goal, a picturesque waterfall 3/4 mile up the hollow from our house.
Water seeps out of the limestone walls beside the waterfall.
The walk back led through the oak forest.
A couple of cute wildflowers.
Interesting how the tree is bent over where all the other trees are vertical. I wonder if it is a marker tree pointing to a spring. I know there is one at the edge of our back yard.
