    I have to say that while that was a beautiful mule deer we saw, later deer sightings were of emaciated deer that were wasting away.

    We wondered about the starving deer and were told at Phantom Ranch by some staff that the deer eat plastic bags and the bags block their intestines, keeping them from being able to digest regular forage. Very sad that people in this beautiful spot would throw trash out on the trail and cause this tragic end for wildlife.
