Don’t hit me!!!

In Sacramento, there are several bike paths, many along the American River. I just commented recently, about spotting 3 deer together (2 bucks and a doe), but this morning beat that pretty good. 🙄

I was up at 5:30-ish, to get ahead of the heat, and saw 5 different deer, all separately. One was a very large doe, who surprised me by standing on the bike path, eating from a tree, on a blind curve. I must have been about 10 feet away, before she moved, and for a few seconds there, I was SURE I was gonna hit her. 😲 We were looking at each other, and I thought to myself, “Good thing I don’t have headlights on, or she’d freeze”, lol, and just then, she turned & ran off. 😎

That sure woke me up, and got my heart pumping. I think I’ll probably be a lot more careful on blind curves, from now on. 😁😉
