We had a nice drive out of the Ouachita National Forest this morning. We stopped at the Old Military Trail and went for a hike. This is hunting season, so we wore our “don’t shoot me” bright orange t-shirts.

Leaving the hilly forest, the terrain quickly change to one of ranching…no crops growing here, but lots of cattle in the fields. As we got closer to the Texas border, we saw more and more people wearing cowboy hats, so we are definitely in ranching country.
We tried stopping at a COE (Corps of Engineers) campground just across the border, but they only had electric sites available at $15 a night, so we carried on to Paris, Texas (pop 26,000) and are staying at the Walmart for free.
