Painted Hills II

I spent five days in the John Day Country in early October. Early in the visit I drove to the Clarno Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.

On the way I spotted several hundred mule deer. Most of the land is privately owned and hunting is either not allowed or is allowed only by those who pay a hefty fee to the land owner. But, it was fun seeing the deer in any event.

Did they spot me?
