As we travelled around we had the opportunity to see lots of animals and a variety of vegetation. There may be some "duplicating" but with the larger animals we were very excited to see them up close for the first time. We also got to see more that we couldn't photograph! Even in Tahlequah we have seen "squirrel fights", deer wandering around the yard, and of course, the dogs! Well, they are just family now.
