Morefield Campground, Mesa Verde National Park

After spending sometime letting the Magic House do its thing we found ourselves in Mesa Verde National Park at the Morefield Campground. It seemed we would be there for a few days.

Morefield Campground Hopi LoopThis place would be a great place for our daily pack walks and I let the humans know I was ready. Still though they made me wait. Something about having to park. I love parks!

I'm ready for a walk. Time to go!

The Magic House stopped in an area where no humans could be seen in all directions. Mama and Papa seemed very happy about this.

Laying on Mama’s lap in the front seat can be a little cramped but I always insist on being up with her instead of getting comfortable on my bed right next to her.

Morefield Campground Guillermo SquintI quickly found some strange animals walking around Morefield Campground.

I wasn’t sure what kind of animals they were but they had hoofs and ate grass so I can only imagine they would probably taste really good!

Morefield Campground DeerAs we made our way around Morefield Campground Papa suddenly stopped and walked away from Mama and I and slowly crept into the bushes. This is what he found.

It just looked like another bird to me.

I wasn’t nearly as interested in the bird as I was in these hoofed animals up ahead.

The whole experience seemed like a complete waste of perfectly good meat to me. While they just kept talking about how beautiful these “Deer” were. Eventually they moved on and so we did the same.

Of course no outing would be complete without Mama making me sit in some random place with Papa saying “watch” over and over… I feel like I used to know what “watch” meant but it seems to have fled my tiny brain. It’ll come back to me I know it.

Guillermo Walpi LoopAs we walked around we saw that Morefield Campground looked like it had all kinds of places for people but there were none to be found.

I always love finding people but Mama and Papa just seemed shocked that there was no one around, they weren’t worried though so I just went with it.

No dice.

Papa remarked that his friend Bryan would be loosing his mind at the site of this many deer. We stood there for some time staring at these animals as they just stared back. Once again we didn’t chase after them… You humans are nuts! Surely we could have caught one of them, right?

DeerSo even though we didn’t bring any meat home Mama and Papa were still very excited to have had this experience here in Morefield Campground and I was very tired.  The next few days would find Mama and I resting in the Magic House as Papa left and came back with some crazy stories and pictures but that is another post.
