Devil's Canyon

Devil's Canyon is a deeply eroded box canyon supporting many disjunct mesic plant species whose natural ranges reach their western extremity about 200 miles east of this area. The close proximity of the mesic flora of the canyon bottom and the two more western plant communities of the canyon rim, is unusual. Nowhere else in Oklahoma is there such a quick transition from eastern deciduous forest type vegetation to an oak woodland-tall grass prairie.
