This will be my final trip post. I saved all the pretty little critters I came across for last.
No lions, or tigers or bears (oh, my!), but there were plenty of ground squirrels,
and squirrels. This little guy was a real ham - when I first tried to get his pic, the batteries in my camera had to be changed. When I set my stuff down to get the batteries out, he must have thought I was getting ready to feed him, so he came running over and started trying to chew on my stuff. But, once I got my new batteries in, he obligingly ran back to his post for his close up, but since he didn't get a treat, kept his back to me at first. It took a while for him to kind of forgive me and sort of turn back again. You can see he still looks a little bit grumpy with me.
There were mountain goats out for their daily stroll along the highway. There were 3 or 4 of them in the road, but it was causing a bit of a traffic jam, so I was trying to get a picture as I was trying to keep moving . . . I didn't want someone to start getting impatient and honking their horns and scare the goats! She looks like she is smiling for her close up! Don't you think? A little Mona Lisa smile?
I went where the deer,
and the antelope play . . .
And I saw even more antelope,
and elk . . .
and more and more elk. As I mentioned in one of my previous posts here, at one of the stops in the mountains, you could hear the elk calls echoing through the peaks. It was really quite nice. Wish I had them on tape! Sure beats the constant calls from the freeway I hear around here! ;)
There were some friendly ravens . . .
and wild cats . . . . oh, wait! How in the world did Moosie get in there? ? ? ;)
Well, that's it from my trip! I've got a little garden update planned for next time! I hope you'll stop back by and have a little taste with me! ;) See ya later!
