A few weeks ago, we went deer hunting with my daughter's family. It was so much fun, and, Christian and Taylor Jo got their deer! This post may be a bit graphic for some, so you may want to squint, or turn your head when the pictures pop up...;0)
No beautiful trees this trip - although, I think the desert has such charm! The weather was just beautiful! Cool nights and wonderful warm days.
I love these mountains - so gorgeous!
Oh my goodness - I love clouds...
and sunsets that take your breath away!
The first day we were there we went for a ride - these guys were so NOT afraid of us, and yes, that is snow!
The first day out,Christian got his deer. I asked him to smile, and he told me that he probably should not smile after he had just killed one of God's creatures...I was proud of him. We do need to be humble, respectful and very thankful for these beautiful animals.
While Amber, James and Christian took his deer to the valley, Taylor Jo and I went for a walk - Isn't she beautiful?!
We were camped near a spot where, probably 60 years ago, the town folk used to dump their garbage. We found some interesting treasures - and some not so good.
Old beer cans... not so good, but interesting. The sad thing is, I think I can remember these!
lots of broken blue glass...
When Christian got back, he took us to a different spot, where we found lots of old bottles.
I wish this old crock would have been intact!
A couple of old horse shoes...for good luck!
We even found crop circles... ;0)
And a few sunset circles.
The next morning they went out...and look who got her deer! She shot him at 300 yards! I think she may have been a little squeamish at first...check out that face!
This was a fun trip, but like Christian, I have a very deep reverence for these beautiful animals. We don't ever waste the meat, and we are not trophy hunters. The meat these deer provide will be put in the freezer and will serve us well this winter.
My sweet daughter is having a baby on November 1st, so we are all excited! I will certainly be posting some cute pictures!
