cat, Chimney, and dog, Daisy, before we left!
Pyg stops for a rest break at Lake Dillon near Frisco and Silverthorne!
A nice lunch of home made pasta salad, thank you mother!
Around Rifle I believe, Grace spotted a bald eagle! We were moving pretty fast (but not over the speed limit, of course), so we didn't get any good pictures, but it's still enough to tell that it's a bald eagle!
pronghorn, one of my most favorite animals of all time! We will be talking about the evolution of the pronghorns speed sometime within the next few weeks!
horns just like the males, they are much smaller, and are rarely pronged.
rennaisance, old school Allosaurus model!
dinosaurs on them, in my opinion.
deer, and went back a little ways to check it out! On someones private property was a group of several fallow deer, a species of deer that, although it has its origins in Europe and Asia, has been introduced on every continent except for Antarctica! There were several small and cute fawns in the mix, as well! Notice that all of the deer, regardless of age, are spotted. Unlike the mule and white-tailed deer fawns that live here in Colorado, the adults do not grow out of their white spots, and instead keep them their entire lives! We actually saw several of these critters at the drive through animal park near my Gramma Roo's house in Texas, click HERE to check out that post, too!
Canada geese on one of the sandbars. It was weird for me to see them out here in the middle of nowhere: usually when I see them, they are pooping all over the green grasses of the schools near my house!
squirrels who were positively itching for food scraps from us humans.
frog eggs in the water!
