Where the deer and the antelope play

After visiting the cave I took a nice 3 hour drive south on another one of my scenic roads.  Today’s drive was Route 31, aka the Oregon Outback Scenic Highway (what a cool name), which goes from La Pine, south through Silver Lake, Summer Lake, Paisley and on to Lakeview before reaching the border with California.  Because I was now in the High Desert the scenery was very different from other parts of Oregon I had driven through this week, and once again the temperature reached 100 degrees.

When I reached Lakeview I turned around and headed back towards Bend.  Shortly after leaving Lakeview I spotted this lone pronghorn (antelope) wandering in a field about a quarter mile to my left.
