We were lucky to have several springs and a running creek in the canyon. It’s a rare thing in the West, which is suffering from a horrible drought. The water ran cool and clear.

Along with the porcupines, deer also returned to the canyon and had their babies. This little one was lying right outside the horse pasture (hence the wire in the photograph). I quickly snapped a picture and headed away, knowing her mother was likely nearby and would not want her baby disturbed. We also heard elk in the fall of 2006, but they were quite elusive, so, unfortunately, I have no pictures of them.
