Deer at Riley Wilderness Park

This weekend Ashley and I had a chance to get away for little bit and visit one of our favorite wilderness parks, Riley Wilderness Park. This is one of the best places to view wildlife in Orange County. We have hiked in this park many times and every time we see wildlife. Today we saw 12 deer, several hawks, various lizards, and a blue crane. Every time we have visited this park we have seen deer, one time we saw a fox, we have seen a rattlesnake, a tarantula, a tarantula wasp, wood rats, and several other things. The park is also home to a resident bobcat that we have not yet seen. If you are looking to see local wildlife this is a great place to visit. Below is a video of one of the deer that we saw today. The write up of the hike will come soon.
