This month we will be going backpacking in the Ouachita mountains in eastern Oklahoma! This is one of the most looked forward to campouts on our calendar. The leaves are changing and the weather is cool so get your backpacks out and let’s head out into the woods!  These mountains offer us the experience of true wilderness along the Oklahoma and Arkansas border.  The area is pristine and filled with wildlife like deer, wild turkey and bears!  We will have 2 crews, one for inexperienced backpackers and one for experienced ones.  Preparing for this trip is very important. Please see the notes below.
