These deer started to run as Rion rushed past me standing in the door.
Six years ago, Rion was born in the foster care program of Pikes Peak Humane Society. Eight weeks later, on a cold December evening, he joined our family.This photo shows him on his first night with us, when he was rather apprehensive. However, within a day or so, he decided that Rion Rules! an attitude he has never lost.
Yesterday a friend and I took our dogs to Black Forest Regional Park. As seen in this photo, BFRP was mostly charred by the 2013 Black Forest wild fire, which started several hundred feet outside the park boundaries. Despite this, we had a lovely walk under cloudy skies, looking at the wild-flowers and Pikes Peak in the distance.
