I realize there is absolutely nothing unusual about seeing deer in residential areas.
But when I saw one this morning shortly after 5 o'clock, I was surprised.
It was standing in the intersection of 31st and Garfield on Spokane's South Hill. That's just behind the Super One.
It seemed perfectly healthy. I slowed my bike down as I got closer. My brakes squeaked. And it trotted off, heading south.
Reminded me a bit of the moose in the opening of "Northern Exposure."
I have been trying to imagine the route it took to get to where I saw it. Must have come from the south or west.
Hope it managed to get out of the city before rush hour.
