Stunning Sight

21 02 2008

Last weekend I went with a friend of mine to check on the herd.  We located a small group of mule deer below us on the mountain by glassing from a rock outcropping, then climbed down for a better look.  Following them as the traversed the hillside to stay ahead of us, they eventually stopped at the end of the ridge, where we watched in amazement as they were joined by more and more deer.  The group eventually numbered thirty five mulies eager to browse on the newly uncovered hay on this sunny side of the mountain.  They watched us watch them for about thirty minutes before they finally decided they’d seen enough of the two stalkers and skeedaddled.  I have more pictures, which I’ll post over the next few days.   dsc_0118.jpg

Wow!

When you say “hay” do you mean something that was placed there? Or is it the hay became uncovered?

Still and all, that’s a lot of mulies!

The “hay” is really just the long grass that was uncovered by the melting snow.
