Well, it’s finally here. The last post from my trip out west last fall. I think I’ve been spreading them out for so long so it won’t feel so final. But all good things have to end. Then again, all good memories remain! Today I’m sharing some photos taken of deer, antelope, elk and burro.
It was fun to see the mule deer with their big ears, so different than the ones here in Indiana.
I was SO excited to see antelope for the first time! And the second. And for several days after that. They certainly aren’t scarce!! 🙂
The elk seemed plentiful as well. It was fun to watch this one large herd and it’s bossy bull who kept a close eye on all the cows. What a ruckus he raised when they wandered the least bit!
In Custer State Park there is a large band of burros that were left behind by miners many years ago. The day I visited the park they were a friendly greeting committee as I entered one portion of the park. How sweet they looked!
I rolled down the window to snap their photos and quickly realized that I certainly wasn’t the first visitor they’d encountered. Their heads popped in my window, begging for treats and attention.
The first fellow got a juice apple from my lunch box.
Little did I know that around each corner there were more of these “greeters” just waiting for me.
Eventually I had to roll up the windows and just keep motoring forward.
So that is the end of the animal photos, I hope you enjoyed viewing them. I had fun seeing them all again as I selected the ones I was going to share with you. Now I am just wondering what new adventures this year will bring. I guess we will find out together!
Happy Friday & weekend wishes,
