... as we passed I could tell that the deer had been hit and the deer had come up over the hood and into the front window! Sure glad it wasn't us. By the way, (sorry back home once again) it was 55 degrees at the top of the pass! It is a hard life, but someone has to live it! Also there was still a little snow there.
