Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, Okla., where you'll see realLonghorns, once almost extinct in the U. S. Come a ti-yi-yippee to the old wild west! Come and see it-the wild and woolly west we dreamed about as kids. Here are the dusty trails, the cowpokes and the bawling dogies... the rimrock mountains where the posse headed 'em off at the pass... where the Sheriff and the Outlaw walked toward each other slow and careful-like, with the .44 loose in the holster. It's all here in the Wichita Mountains and it's all real, just as it was. Texas Longhorns-last survivors of the old-time breed that was herded up the Chisholm Trail. Open ranges-alive with the buffalo and elk, turkey and prairie dogs that made this a Cheyenne hunting ground. Every year, vacationers come here to re-live the old west camping, swimming, hiking, studying nature in a 59,020-acre living museum that has no equal anywhere in the world. Bring the kids when you come. They'll love it. And, like you, they'll appreciate the drama, the drive and the dream that made our country grow-out where the West begins, and where the love of freedom never ends.
