Munching Mule Deer

Sunday morning we went exploring west of Denver. We weren't zipping along but didn't have space to pull over on the highway. So...
Sarah kindly turned around so we could go back to take pictures of the mule deer that were right by the road.
This little one was off by itself hiding behind a bush and wasn't moving. Sarah was concerned that it would be separated from the others as they turned to walk off. Love those ears!
Walking back to the car I saw that the herd hadn't gone far--just around the back of the building and up the hillside to munch on some more grass.
A nice day with beautiful blue Colorado skies and a drive on Lariat Loop the scenic bypass that was just long enough so we could have lunch before stopping at Colorado Mills . (Click on the underlined phrases for two sites).

Thanks Dolly for our mini vacation!

Hi Marilyn,
The deer are lovely creatures, aren't they? We don't have them here where we live. I like the tea cup in your post below. One of my favourites is also by Bigelow; Cranberry Apple. I am hosting a Tea tomorrow on my blog, I would love to have you join me. Hope your day is wonderful in every way.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi again,
Thanks for stopping by, Marilyn. All you need to do to join me for Tea Time is post a picture of a favourite teacup, tea pot, etc. A scripture verse would be appreciated too. I would appreciate you putting my Tea Time button on your post but if you are not used to doing that sort of thing, it's ok. I will add your link to my post. So happy to have you join me. Have a wonderful evening and I'll see you tomorrow.

Blessings,
Sandi

What a beautiful example of the wonder of God's creation. I could look at the pictures for hours.
