Share article to

In Colorado higher elevations receive increased moisture during spring and summer and thus provide enhanced forage conditions for deer. Mule deer can often been seen on top of mountains. In this photo, the mule deer was found on the top of Trail Ridge Road (elevation is above 12,000 feet) in Rocky Mountain Nation Park.
