Home on the range

I don't know about antelope, but there are plenty of deer playing on the grounds of Fort P. It's amazing how deer are so prolific and are seen just about everywhere, and I think they are in all 50 states. I doubt there is anyone in the United States who hasn't seen a deer up fairly close. Yet do you ever notice that folks always slow down to watch them, and get excited about it.

I see deer from my rv windows and drive past them at least twice a day, but I still marvel at these beautiful animals. Maybe it's something in their eyes, or in their expressions when they look up to watch you pass, and decide if you are friend or foe. Whatever it is, I don't think anyone is immune to slowing up and taking a good look, although some might be seeing venison on the table.

This morning was cold but with a hint of warmer weather to come, and there was no wind. I took some photos of the moat which was calm and reflected the Fort and the sky:

Today I took a photograph of a photograph of Robert E. Lee, which looks to be from his graduation from West Point.

I always thought he was a handsome older man, but he sure looked fine as a young guy!


  1. Great pictures! I especially like the reflections.

  2. Thanks for the pictures. The moat is NOTHING like I visioned.

  3. Nice pics, Gypsy - even that last one!!

  4. I'm glad you posted the pics of the moat. It is great looking and you really caught the reflections in the water nicely.

  5. That moat was very English castle looking old chap.
