It Is A Wild Life
In our travels we ran across a few wild animals. Believe it or not I did not take pictures of all of them. I did not take a shot of mule deer but I did drive myself a little crazy trying to get a picture of the violet-green swallow. They are incredibly fast but at last one landed.
Twice we saw herds of Desert Bighorn Sheep. Horses on reservation land, on trail rides and in wait of a rodeo.
There were sheep, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, blue jays, cows and I love that we see antelope out west. ,We did not see mountain lions or rattle snakes which is just fine.
I do see Desert Bighorns coming in the near future pastel or oil, hmmm. I was hoping to see elk but not this time. We read that the North Rim of the Grand Canyon has a herd of buffalo 400 strong but we saw none.
We are about 18 days into our cross country trip. We are on the east coast, have been for a for about a week, GA, S.C. crossed through N.C. ...
