All I wanted for my birthday was mountains(or as close as you can get to them in Oklahoma) and a fall family picture.
My husband drove me all of the way to Ouachita Mountains and back in one day.
Long drive but I was happy to be there.
I would move there in a heartbeat.
It is always a good idea to make sure you don’t forget the tripod if one of your goals on a trip is a family pic.
I ended up balancing my camera on my camera bag and even on the hood of our vehicle.
Maybe next time we can stay the night and get some more hiking in.
And yes, I did think it was odd that I wanted to stay in a vehicle with 5 kids all day for my birthday.
