Look who came to dinner!

We’ve been at Grand Canyon N.P. for almost two months and have just one week left. We’ve had snow on the ground for the past three weeks – upwards of two feet at one time, with another 6-8 inches added just this past week.

The Park Service provided housing for us this time around – it would have been utterly miserable trying to stay warm in our trailer, let alone keep it from freezing up!

We’ve been snuggled into a modular trailer unit in one of the residential areas. It is a quiet neighborhood; but we have a lot of daily visitors.

The deer come in all sizes, from the littlest one that is so cute – I hope it survives the winter – it seems so much smaller than the other fawns. A lone doe and her fawn are our most regular visitors, but occasionally we get a larger group. Of course, we also get the stags who come to check out the “ladies!”

The stags come in 2-3 points – up to many points. It is amazing to see how many have broken antlers.

We’ve only had a few elk sightings, they must be staying elsewhere.

At least we know one thing – the animals will be glad when they can stop eating from the broken juniper and pine branches and see grass again. So will we…… see grass that is…

Happy New Year!

We like to travel and even spent nine years roaming around North America in a 40 foot motorhome. We're now back in a home in Washington state roaming by car, air, and boat.
