    The Lawton View area is a misunderstood neighborhood where there is a lot of talent but just directed in another path. For example I met someone there who is very talented and he has a website, if your into R&B or rap you will like what he has to offer. His ambition is what made me notice how much talent is truly hidden in this small town. What amazes me is that in this small city that has old roads and buildings there are those in the Lawton View area that have talent ready to be heard. The Lawton View area should be a sight seeing area to learn about ambition from a small town. They built a website and its

    Mount Scott

    The Wichita Mountains sometimes called the Ancestral Rockies because they are thought to have been that vast, with the younger Rockies at the tail of the ancient Wichita Range.
    These are the oldest mountains in the great plains. They mainly consist of granite, rhyolite, and some other igneous rocks and are considered to be about 300 million years old. The tallest peak is Mt. Scott and many scoff at the title "mountain" as it stands only about 2500 feet above sea level. But on this flat part of the earth, that is a mountain!

    Geronimo's Last Stand

    by mrclay2000 Written Apr 19, 2004

    The Apache chief Geronimo lies near the most conspicuous marker in the Apache cemetery. His wife, offspring and near-relatives lie nearby. All that is required to access the military base is the presentation of a picture I.D. (your driver's license is sufficient) and a few miles of driving before reaching the Apache graveyard. Geronimo's resting place is notably marked by a pyramid of stones, generally decorated with little trinkets and gifts from Indian children.
