  1. Thank you for pointing that out o topic master
  2. A couple of firsts yesterday - 1st Bald Eagle of the season and the first time I have seen mule deers in the Rio Grande Gorge
  3. These were in the Rio Grande Gorge today. There were about 20 or so along the west rim above the old Taos Junction Bridge. At times one would fly down and check a hole in the rock face
  4. The rut is here. When the heads hit, it is loud
  5. Hey, I'm from Louisiana, Lafayette. As long as the wind is not blowing and the sun is shining, I'm good
  6. Well, I have been known to stop in the middle of the road, at least above Pilar, not on the taos highway, get run over that way.
  7. Cool in the morning but nice after 10. The Caldera will be cold, I had a long sleeve t shirt and vest on Saturday until about 10
  8. If you get a chance, go to the Rio Grande Gorge at Pilar. The eagles should be arriving. The most I have seen is 10 between the Taos Junction Bridge and Embudo Station, plus a few different species of ducks
  9. You have to be there at the crack of dawn, before they move into the trees, around 8:30. The two best spots, at least that I have found are about 3 miles north of Los Alamos National Labs on Hwy 4 past the intersection with NM 502. You can short cut through the main gate of LANL on Jemez Rd. Just have a valid ID. When you get to the elk crossing sign, slow down, they will cross right in front of you. They are around until you get to the hair pin curve. A little further along, you will see a parking area for trails at Bandolier National Monument - a lot of times there is mule deer herd around that area. As you keep going you will get to the Caldera. There is a nice herd that you can usually see from the road. But look on both sides. If you see one coming up the hill towards the road, he will cross in front of you.
  10. At Bandolier and Valles Caldera, NM
