Whenever we go on our driving adventures, I am always on the look out for critters. Sometimes we get lucky and are happy if we see just one deer or just one elk. This time, however, we hit the jackpot. We saw SO MANY critters, all over the place. It totally made our day.
The first critters we saw were some juvenile bighorn sheep just feeding on the side of the road. The full grown ram is the logo for CSU, up in Fort Collins.
He is either sticking his tongue out at me or giving me the raspberry.
I was SO excited to see the bighorns. We rarely see them. I would have been very happy if this was all we saw. But the day just kept getting better and better. After leaving our bighorns, we came across some playful and curious chipmunks.
Still not done. Did you know Colorado has one of the highest numbers of horse populations in the United States? Seeing the horses here is just part of the Wild West and the whole Coloradan experience.
Still not done though. We saw quite a few deer as too. This just made out day very full and very complete. They took over the streets of Downtown Evergreen and even the parking lot of the Sheriff’s Department.
I think she is actually a juvenile elk.
This little guy was having so much fun just playing in the water.
I just need to get to the other side.
It’s been a busy day. I think I’m just going to rest now.
And so ends our very adventurous and beautiful day. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
