This weekend I went on a float trip to Talequah, Oklahoma on the Illinois River.
One of my favorite things to do when I'm with a group on overnight trips is being the first person to wake up. There are several reasons for this. One, I like getting ready without waiting in line. But in the great outdoors, I like it because the world is beautiful in the morning light!
The hours spent waking up early are rarely wasted. I couldn't believe no one else was out there to soak in what I got to see.
