    Wow, if you can see the western trail head you are on some choice property. That is probably the prettiest part of Oklahoma.

    Yep. Talimena Drive. I guess you no longer live down in Arkansas?

    No, Arkansas is a nice place to live if you like the outdoors and a nice place to grow up, but its not a nice place to try to further your career in. Moved up to Kansas City in 1999.

    Great pics. Would love to visit those places.

    I have spent a fair amount of time on the Jacks Fork and Current river near Eminence Mo. Yearly trip for us about a week at a time. When I was younger I spent a great deal of time in the mountains just outside of Santa Maria Ca.

    To this day my family and I are in the woods as much as we can possible be. Either backpacking, canoeing, trail riding, Etc. Just can't get enough of it. Recently bought a cabin in the woods of Ste Genevieve Mo so now I will be forever surrounded by the wilderness.

    Thanks for posting.

    The Wilderness Act celebrates its 50th year this year. I don't know how many people on here have spent any nights miles from the closest road or signs of civilization in the backcountry in one of our federal wilderness areas, but if you haven't you really are missing out.

    Sure just bring a gun and a snake-bite kit and you'll be cool.

    Snake bites are rarely fatal, and dying from a bear attack is 1 in 10,000,000 or so. It's exposure that kills people in the back country.

    That's awesome. You know the Missouri DNR reintroduced Elk into Missouri Ozarks a couple of years ago.

    Still, always prudent to take precautions.

    No I didn't. Just bought the house down there so plenty to learn still. That is cool though. Have to keep my eyes open for one.

    There is also a large herd in Northern Arkansas on the Buffalo. If you have never been there its worth the trip, really, really pretty area.
