a fawn, a running deer, and an elk

The shots from this other camera should have the correct date.

On Tuesday we saw two moose near Cooper Cabin - wow! They were amazing to catch a fleeting glimpse of! Paul was surprised they ran off because they usually aren't bothered by mere cars and mere humans. They scoff at our puny-ness!

It was very near this photo of the road to Cooper Cabin that we saw them:



Though that picture is from December and we don't have quite as much snow around now, a few weeks later.

Since I DIDN'T get a photo of the moose, I will share this rather crappy/slightly boring video of the wild turkeys outside the Fisher Price House dining room window. On Christmas Day no less! Those windows are what we come times call "turkey TV."

The watering hole, by far, has had the most wildlife since the snow melted. The other cameras catch mostly humans.
