July 19, 2010
Driving down the valley we come across several Pronghorn Antelope and stop to watch them awhile. Further on we run across a single very large Buck who is really intrigued with something in the tall grasses that we never could make out. He would stare ahead down into the grasses and snort and whistle then wheel and with a burst of speed tear off for 30 or 40 yards only to repeat this behavior. All the while ingnoring us completely. We watch and photograph him until the failing light becomes too late for descent pictures.
Further on down the road-definitely too late for photography we come on to a Doe Whitetail Deer who poses most magnificently for us. She is so different from the much more common Mule Deer we are accustomed to. Further still we find a Cow Moose deeply imbedded in the willows. Again escaping having her photo taken because of the darkness.
It was a great evening to be out and to experience the best of what the outdoors has to offer.
