Deer Crossing Attempt

March 1, 2009

 

 

 

 

  Eight deer attempt to cross the Colorado near

  Phantom Ranch at dawn.  Water level is high

  (brown) due to a flush from Glen Canyon Dam.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Two lead deer manage to get past the main turbulence

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  The remaining six get washed downstream

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Deer spread out as they get further downstream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Four deer make it to shore.  Two are washed out of sight.
