On my previous post I shared some of the wild flowers that we saw when driving our guests through the San Juan Mountains on a jaunt hoping to spot wildlife.
We did spot a large herd of sheep. While these are not really wild life, they are free to roam the hills
guarded only by a couple of (very smart) dogs and one sheep herder who lives all summer in a small trailer.
At one of the four lakes of Deer Lakes. I spotted a Golden Mantle Squirrel eating a flower,
and I hesitate to even show you this blurry zoom of what you may think is a dog but is actually a beaver. We will be out investigating again soon as we have more guests arriving today.
