Up Close and (too) Personal

A few weeks ago, we met up with some friends to visit The Yellow River Game Ranch.This interesting place has a mile-long trail where you come quite close to people friendly birds and animals. We encountered white-tailed deer, bunnies, buffalo, sheep, goats, and even black bears (which were kept in large cages). For reasons I won't go into, I felt sorry for those bears. Anyway, I was a little caught off guard by the overly friendly deer and other animals. I think Addison was over it after a few minutes of feeding the deer. Funny, Addison is always running after and chanting, "Come back!" to the birds, squirrels and dogs in our neighborhood, but this level of closeness between man and animal seemed a little too much for her! Here are a few pictures from that day:


Hi Bambi!


Gee, what big eyes you have!


Dad, I think he wants more.


Hurry Dad! He's getting a little too cozy.
