Last year we didn't see the herd until October. This year though, we caught a glimpse without snow.
Heidi, Jodi, and I went out for a ride. Nothing special, just wanted to get out while the ground's still soggy. We were headed out to Clear Lakes, which you can see here. Clear Lakes is a string of five lakes located between Stebbins and St. Michael, which provide fresh drinking water to both villages. It's a beautiful area for picnicking and sightseeing. To make a short story even shorter, we never made it. Halfway to the lakes we spotted the reindeer herd.
We drove our four wheelers to the top of a hill to find this great vantage point.
