There we were, on the road after a recent snow-shoeing expedition in eastern Nevada. What's that up ahead! Slow down, slow down!
Ah, it's a large herd of antelope licking salt off the road. Don't slow down too fast, I want to get some pictures.
Now they've noticed, although four antelope are still coming down to that large asphalt salt lick, aka Highway 50.
Now, about twenty are running away from the road as fast as possible, jumping and leaping through the deep snow, while another ten or more are standing around watching, up on the hill away from the road.
The rush becomes a mad dash!
One or two turn to stare at us as we go by; the others keep running.
Two young ones, stragglers, scramble up the slope.
One last antelope watches from the hill of snow, the southern Egan Range in the background.
The last antelope.
Location was about here coming into Steptoe Valley.
