Since we had a short drive to Sedona today from the Grand Canyon we thought we would walk over to the Canyon Cafe and have a nice breakfast. It wasn't a long walk----maybe what would be considered about 2 blocks. It was along the road and next to the woods.
As we walked over we actually found some wild lupines growing next to the road. They don't quite look like our Maine lupines, but they were lupines just the same and here they were growing in the fall rather than the spring.
On the other side of the road we heard out elk buddy. He was probably the one we heard during the night and the one that walked by the MH. He was sitting there doing his mating call thing with his harem, about 6 to 7 females around him grazing.
As we walked back, we looked over and there were 4 mule deer laying under the trees. Very sweet. They are certainly not afraid of people and neither are the elk-----------unless you yell at them and chase them way.
