They are big. Good looking boulders!

Valley of the Boulders, hundreds of feet below, is full of big boulders like these. It's a great playground! Thanks for looking! --mark d.

yessir I do! Cool boulders & human subjects provide nice sense of scale.

I hope to be able to visit the Wichita Mts. as I live near Dallas. I am interested in photography and trail hiking, probably not any tech. stuff. This site should help me get a start gathering info.

Thanks, Slowbutsteady! Yep, you're just a hop and a skip away from the Wichitas. Be sure to visit the newly revised SP Wichita Mtns page, if you haven't already. It's definitely a neat place to go--any time of the year! --mark d.

You're right. Great to see scouts in action. I work with a group of cub scouts so we don't get quite that adventurous.

Last November the troop took a group of Webelos Scouts to a campout here. The younger Boy Scouts and Webelos hiked the Dog Run Hollow Trail System on the other side of Elk Mountain (which is where Apple and Pear are situated). That's a pretty easy hiking environment. Our crew headed to Philmont this summer also hiked Dog Run Hollow--they were after miles. The older boys, not quite as old as these Eagle Scouts, hiked into Charon's Garden. It's a lot more challenging. We didn't let them run free on the rocks up to Apple and Pear, as we had earlier in the year with our very oldest Scouts. But, they had a great time. Stick with those Cubs and you'll be taking them on great adventures soon enough--they grow up so fast! --mark d.
