Took the family to the Grand Canyon last weekend. My wife had never seen it and I hadn't been there in 16 years. It is bigger than I remember and more beautiful. This time of year is the best time to go if you want to avoid the crowds. And I must say it was impeccably clean thanks to the National Park Service. Anyways, these are the local deer that have all but lost their fear of humans.





They are about 10 miles from the legal hunting area(Kaibab National Forest) and they know it. Enjoy!

Ya know, just once, I'd like to find one of those road signs that have to be on deer trails, that say "Safe Haven 5 miles ->".

That non-typical has more character than you can shake a stick at. I'd love to see him where I had a tag for him.

This herd was literally right off the main road next to the Yavapai Lodge. I saw some more just inside the park entrance that were pretty nice but couldn't get the camera out in time. You can see the path in the pictures. People we're walking down that path and the deer didn't even care. I got about 15 yards from them to snap the pics. Oh yeah...here's what the canyon looked like.
