Sighting for June 18, 2018

Brant Reif

North of the Beech Creek National Scenic Area, Ouachita National Forest
Le Flore County, OK

My oldest and I camped in the National Forest. Our planned hikes into the Beech Creek National Scenic Area were blocked by the overgrowth along the trails so what we saw was along the forest service roads. Along with the butterflies listed we also saw four Black Bears, a female Three-toed Box Turtle, and a Southern Black Racer. The bears made for an exciting camping trip!
