Thumbs up Vermont doe and fawn sighting

Me and the family visited Vermont this weekend and stayed at Sterling Ridge Resort in the Stowe area. My daughter was competing in a soccer tournament in nearby Burlington. On the way out of the resort Saturday morning we happened to see a doe. She looked a little nervous but did not run away immediatly. Thirty seconds or so later we saw a fawn get up and proceed to bounce away. I have two daughters 13 and 11 who were absolutely thrilled to see this sight!

Sounds like you all had a great time. Those fawns are cool to see especially when they're still real small but yet very fast.

It was with the mom and we did stay a good distance from them both. Even though the kids wanted a better look I did not want to stress the animals out.
