The evening hours were also the best time to see the local ungulates which included many Mule Deer which would appear out of the scattered tree stands and taller shrubs lining the sloped sides of the beautiful canyon. The buck below takes a moment while grazing to give me a look as I hike a scenic hillside trail. In the summer months the male muleys' antlers are still growing in "velvet" and furry hide covers the living tissue below as the antlers grow back in.
Another common sight around the grounds were Moose and some would reliably feed in the algae laden ponds near the Steakhouse on the grounds. I never actually digiscoped one of these but did snag a photo of a big yearling with my camera phone after enjoying a nice dinner! Some lucky observers also found Mountain Goats here but I was never at the right spot at the right time to enjoy this. At any rate, the place was definitely crawling with wildlife. A pleasant departure from the typical venue in a hotel in the middle of a concrete jungle.
Further afield, along the shores of the Great Salt Lake, Pronghorn Antelope mixed with reintroduced Bison. We even saw a distant Desert Bighorn Sheep on a relatively small rocky rise. This mammalian smorgasbord was a pleasant distraction for me though living in the semi-tropical lowlands.
