Deer Lakes

Deer Lakes is off of highway 149 near the summit of Slumgullion Pass near Lake City.  I think they should consider changing the name to Moose Lakes since it is the place moose are often spotted in the area.  We saw a mama moose and her two babies near the upper lake.

These three small lakes are a great place to see wildlife and do some fishing.

Savanna was trying to catch a fish in the middle lake when she saw this ermine (also known as a short-tailed weasel or stoat) jump in the water and catch a pretty big fish.  He stashed it in the rocks and came running closer to us to check us out.  I'm sad my photos of him were blurry, but I was a little nervous that he was going to come over and run up my leg or something.
