Early morning trip out to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. The bison herd was off in the distance, but this guy was wandering around nearby.

+Todd Settimo That sounds like a fantastic trip!  I had a similar experience with a bull Elk in Rocky Mountain National Park.  I was moving while I was taking pictures and then he looked at me, and I was suddenly aware of how exposed I was.  :)

Closed for the Season  During our camping trip last weekend I came across these canoes waiting patiently for spring.  Good thing too, the lake currently has ~18" of ice.  Makes for tough paddling.

Run Away!
A White-tailed Deer decided it was time to head.  Part of a trip to Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.  What a great resource, and close to home too!

    Engineer, present
Husband, Father, Engineer, Scientist, Scoutmaster, Amateur Photographer. I am Jack's raging bile duct.
A member of an elite group of volunteers known as "Scouters", Arlen has been selected from the horde of applicants to become the Scoutmaster of the newest (and best!) scout troop in Colorado.

When he isn't spending an inordinate amount of time acting like an 8 year old, Arlen can be found working in R&D for a medical device company.

He also spends time talking about himself in the third person and spending way too much time and money geeking out on photography.
