Article Photos: Oklahomans face hurdles in federal government shutdown 1/1

About three hours into their activities to shut down the Chickasaw National Recreation Area (CNRA) Tuesday, Oct. 1, workers stop at the Hillside Springs to discuss their next project. They were on their way to the Buckhorn area at Lake of the Arbuckles to lock gates, barricade roads and give campers a 48-hour notice to vacate campsites. The CNRA closing resulted from the budget impasse in Congress that lead to the Federal government shutdown that day. The National Park Service closed 401 sites it manages nationally.
