Trumpetflower at Oxley (click image for slideshow)

My friends and fellow teachers Linda Shipley and Susan Staats joined me for a 4.35 mile walk at Tulsa’s Oxley Nature Center. We trod portions of a long list of short trails: Meadowlark Prairie, Red Fox, Woodpecker, Green Dragon, Bob’s, Coal Creek, Blackbird Marsh, Blue Heron, Bird Creek, Karen’s, Flowline, Whitetail, and Coyote. (The Coyote trail is not shown on the center’s online trail map, so I added it to my own version.)

Linda suggested and Susan encouraged most of the shots from this day hike, from the butterfly on the trumpetflower to the sequence of thistles; I got a shot of a deer watching our progress along the Flowline Trail.

We recovered from the hot and rather buggy hike with Irish Balloons at Kilkenny’s. 🙂
