Griffith Park

Went on another ride up around griffith park today after work.  Of course it is semi clear on the day that I don't have my camera with me, but the iPhone comes in handy when there is nothing else.
As we were coming through the tunnel near the observatory, we almost hit a mother dear.  A few seconds later a fawn came bounding across followed by another doe.  While I have seen many deer, it was surprising to me to see this in LA.  I know Griffith Park is large, but I didn't think there was that much wildlife, especially in the busier part of the park between the observatory and the Greek theater.  Two weeks ago on a similar ride, I passed a coyote on the rode, just walking down the street.  I'm guessing it is from the fire last year that pushed them out to were it is busy.  It is just nice to see that among all of the smog and people, there is still some wildlife left in LA.
