Deer and Elk

Most of the big animals we saw were right by the road.
These mule deer didn't mind grazing beside a big intersection
with lots of tour buses that say "Grand Canyon."
These two deer's ears spread wide because they heard me sneeze as I was
about to take the photo. Why not sneeze?
Just before we left Grand Canyon we took a long and beautiful walk along the rim trail.
An elk walked right onto the trail -- he didn't know the rule about staying 50 feet from people.

Elk near a parking lot in the early evening -- we saw them as we were walking away from where we had dinner.

I'm going to remember the sneeze thing -- they're so pretty with their ears wide. Of course, I suppose they could bolt, too! Sounds like you are having just a wonderful time!

"Why not sneeze?" is the dada title of a work by Marcel Duchamp that we always quote.
