Photon and I have had such a wonderful time in Oklahoma! There was a bit of rain (well, 7 inches in 2 or 3 hours one night when a tornado touched down on the north side of the mountains, meaning refuge staff had to come and wake me up and evacuate me. That was an adventure--especially because they brought us to the environmental education building, where Photon got to investigate a bunch of cool stuffed animals!). But all the rain made everything about as beautiful as it could possibly be.
And the pièce de résistance:
I'll have a bazillion more photos, and some videos of a singing Painted Bunting and the most versatile mockingbird I've ever heard as soon as I can get them up.
