The deer didn’t look like they were going to leave the area anytime soon, and my friends and I were getting colder by the minute
I moved to Denver for winter skiing, but I quickly learned Denver has a lot more to offer than ski resorts and winter weather. I had to find a job and an apartment in Denver. Fortunately, it was really easy to find a job. Once I started work, I quickly found someone that let me sleep on their couch for a couple bucks each month. My roommate Jack has introduced me to a lot of different places around Denver. One of my favorite places is the Wildlife Refuge. The Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge is close to Commerce City and only a few miles Northeast of Denver. It is a really cool place that is managed by the fish and game service. Inside the refuge you can find deer, prairie dogs, bison, and birds of prey. It’s rare to see a large herd of mule deer, but my friends saw a herd last weekend when we were hiking in the r efuge. It was very cold outside and uncommon to see so many deer in one place. I was ready to go back to the car and sit in the heat, but I didn’t want to leave after I saw the herd of deer. My friends and I watched them for an hour before we decided to head back to the car. The deer didn’t look like they were going to leave the area anytime soon, and my friends and I were getting colder by the minute. The temperatures were starting to drop as the sun was setting behind the mountain. We ran the heat all the way back to our apartment.
