Scenic Drive Through the Mountains

Posted in Nature, Photography, Travel, Wildlife by leahyetter on September 29, 2010

We weren’t sure where we wanted to go so we jumped in the truck and just drove. It was a beautiful day and I wanted the folks to see our surroundings. Along the way, we caught this Mule deer relaxing in the brush.

We happened upon this quiet ranch. The fresh hay bales means someone is there but at first glance we thought it was abandoned.

We got out of the truck to take in the view and breathe the fresh mountain air. As I walked along a short trail, I stepped on this rock and had to take a picture of it. It came home with me needless to say.

We saw all kinds of wildlife but of course antelope were everywhere we went. You can’t go anywhere without spotting hundreds of these guys in various pastures. But the thing that is a constant frustration to me and Dad with photographing wildlife is that we always get butt shots. They are always running from us and we’re sick of all the rear ends in our lens. So don’t be surprised if one day there is a post on this blog with strictly deer and antelope butts!

But as this one got away, I was glad that the grass covered his backside and I got a good view of his horns.
