Rush Hour

This is what rush hour in Elizabeth looks like -
That's our local ranch supply store in the background.

She is beautiful ! and looks so tame -bit worried that she is so near that main road .

Texan said...

Wow she is sure calm for being that close to a vehicle! She does kind of look like she is thinking, "excuse me I believe I had the right of way"!

JJ said...

I can't believe how close she is to the car! Pretty :)

Sharon said...

Is she someone's pet? She seems awfully calm to be that close to the car. Beautiful!

Tucker said...

Wow, that's amazing.

Is that a mule deer? Looks a bit heftier than our whitetails.

"Excuse me, but would you happen to have picked up any cracked corn you'd be willing to share?"

Great picture! We have a herd of deer near our new place. They are also looking shaggy, like your doe.
You are right about our Pike's Peak views. We are closer than you as our current home is just north of Black Forest. We will miss the peak when we move to Parker. We can sorta see it... but we have a hill and a house on the hill that blocks most of the view.

She doesn't look nervous at all... almost like she's wondering what everyone is looking at! She's beautiful!

I'm glad you guys like the deer - I sure do. There are several herds of mule deer in the area. The one that hangs out on this road is about 10 strong. They amble across the road from the ranch supply store to the town cemetery every day. They aren't afraid of cars at all, and no one bothers them.

We get that kind of traffic here in Evergreen also! What they like about the downtown intersection is beyond me.

Terry said...

Mountain Thyme, it's nice to meet you. I tried to go to your blog, but I got a message saying it's been removed. Drop me your URL if you don't mind so I can say hi.

Oh I thought that was a hood ornament...sorry...just tiddin'!

Louise said...

Awwww, she's even directing traffic with those ears of hers!

Jim said...

You better 'watch' that pace, Terry! lol

Dreaming said...

Terry, thanks for asking about us. I was worrying about you, as I'm not sure exactly where you are. We are safe and should probably be OK. There are a bunch of houses between us and the fire and I am pretty sure fire departments will work like mad not to let those houses get involved.
If you do need to evacuate and need a place for horses, hounds, cats or yourselves, let me know. 843 368 9338
