My Crazy Family & The Canyon Wildlife

A while back I read a great article in Frommer’s I believe about a Park Ranger based in the Grand Canyon talk about how rationale people become well idiots when it comes to visiting the Grand Canyon.

Going on all day hikes with one bottle of water…

Staying out overnight without supplies & having to be rescued…

Stopping in the middle of the road to take a picture of a deer…

When I read that, I remember thinking… what kinda of lunatic does that???

Then I went to the Grand Canyon, and realized I am related to the lunatics, the Park Ranger was referring to (and yes I took a few pictures myself so I suppose I am a lunatic too)

Yep.  Guilty.

I am guilty of stopping in the middle of the road to take a picture of a very common animal in East Texas, one that I have seen probably 1000s of times.

Why you ask?  Because this deer was at the Grand Canyon.

Let me just say, not stopping for the deer was not an option.  I am pretty much 100% positive I heard choice words from my brother about not stopping to get a picture at one point.

Not to mention they would just walk out in front of you, like they owned the place.

Anyway,  if you are ever at the Grand Canyon, expect the crazy to come out when wildlife comes out… because I guess most people have never seen a deer at the Grand Canyon. . .   or a chipmunk or a bird…

You get the idea.
