Today was such a nice hike with cool weather and no rain. I kept waiting for the rain but it never came. The start of sunset was gorgeous, but I couldn’t stop on the road and take a picture.
A deer shocked the crap out of me when it jumped out of the forest and across the road, and back into the brush! It was so quick that my first reaction was stopping in my tracks. I’m sure it didn’t initially see me or it wouldn’t have come out in the first place.
I also turned down an abandoned road and saw a large doe with a young one. A great day for seeing wildlife!
