Visiting Madera Canyon is almost always filled with wildlife encounters and Saturday's hike was no exception. Both Mule Deer and White-tailed Deer are found at Madera Canyon. They blend really well in this environment so getting a good picture is not always a sure thing but it is fun to try.
These White Tail were very accommodating and we spotted at least six in the herd and had several encounters with them during our visit. They only became alarmed when people with dogs came down the path and then it was tails up and bounding away as quickly as possible.
