Blacktail Deer

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 8 May 2019 in Animal & Insect.

On the drive down from Hurricane Ridge in Olympic NP, we were soon out of the higher altitude snow, and down into beautiful forest.

Blacktail deer may be the park's most graceful mammal. They are much smaller than Roosevelt elk, and may be seen just about anywhere within Olympic National Park, from subalpine forests and meadowlands down to river valleys.
