|This is our guide.. The deer obviously know him. He is taking them a 'goodie'!|
On September 16, 2011, George and I were in Cass, West Virginia riding an old steam engine train up to Bald Knob (elevation 4700+ feet). IF you missed my post on this ride, click HERE
to read about it. As I mentioned in that post, when we got to Bald Knob, we enjoyed watching some deer coming for some snacks... Apparently, they come every afternoon when the train gets there--because they know that someone will bring them some treats! Here are my photos of the deer at Bald Knob!!!!
|Mama Deer will come right up to our guide... The baby is not quite sure!!!!!|
|The guide walks closer to the train... Mama follows.. Baby stays behind!!!|
|Now --there are THREE interested deer around!!!|
|Looking up at us (on the train), the deer is saying: "Anyone got any food for me?????"|
|Mom and Baby are leaving.. Guess they got enough to eat!!!!!|
|We are leaving ---but the deer is still standing there hoping for more food.. (The guide had told us to throw crackers/bread/popcorn out for them. They got alot of snacks!!!)|
This was just so neat ---watching the deer 'begging' for food... Our guide was just marvelous. He talked to us on a microphone the entire trip---giving us history of the area all along the way... He'd tell us when to look a certain direction for great views... It was awesome!!!!!
IF you ever get to West Virginia, be sure to go to Cass --and ride the train... SO much FUN!!!!!
Have a great day.
