Three Bucks, No Doe

A nice cool morning and a new power steering pump, so we headed for Journigan Mine again to have another look around. Although there aren't any remains of the mine, there are numerous piles of old tailings, so we decided to dig around a bit to see what was left. We didn't find anything of value, just some pretty rocks to bring home for our cactus garden. On the way to Journigan, along A-Cross Road, we spotted three good size bucks. All three sported large racks, enough to make a taxidermist or hunter drool. We watched them until they bounded off as though they had springs on their hooves. Quite a thrilling sight to see!
It was overcast, so the pictures aren't so great, but you'll get the idea.
