Albuquerque's Wild Side

I spent the last week walking around with my Contaflex.  I started up on Monday with a hike through the arroyos and foothills of the Sandia Mountains just east of town.  The ragged summit of the Sandias snagged some low clouds, but they only leaked a few shreds of rain.  A couple mountain bikers appeared for just an instant on the trail.

I veered off the trail and two mule deer jumped up in front of me.  They bounded off a few yards and then stopped to study my intentions.  I made a couple shots with the Contaflex.  When I stepped forward, the deer slipped into the trees.  I moved up slope just a little and the deer reappeared, stopped. to look at me for another moment, and then they were gone.
