With my computer offline I have not been inspired to go out with my camera until this morning. I drove to the pond immediately after dropping my daughter off at school. I went straight to the grove where the whitetails bed down but they were nowhere to be seen. In fact, with the exception of a couple of squirrels and a few birds, there was little sight of any wildlife at all. My disappointment was short-lived though. I love being out in the wild as the world is waking up.
I never get tired of the view of Pikes Peak, as you may have noticed by now. Ironically, for as much as I love the mountain, I have only actually been to the top a few times because of my extreme fear of heights. Now I will only visit the summit if someone else drives for me, the road is too winding, narrow and close to the edge of the mountain for my comfort.
