Tygh (rhymes with high) Valley lies at 1,000 feet east of the Badger Creek Wilderness. In the spring when all the hillsides are green it’s an especially interesting area to visit.
On the Memorial Day weekend I parked in a pretty area above the valley. It looked like it would be a good place to spot mule deer.
And, over the next couple of hours I spotted many mule deer, including some bucks beginning to grow their new antlers.
Many of the does were obviously pregnant. Soon I will be spotting little fawns.
Open country, sunshine, green grasses, wildflowers in bloom and many deer to see. Does life get much better?
