Deer Lick

Team Astro hadn’t seen anyone in days on the PNT. We were in the Pasayten Wilderness in Eastern Washington taking a break in the shade. From about a football field away, I said there’s a big animal! She came right for us! As the Deer approached we all kept very still and quiet desperately trying not to laugh. Oakdale slowly lifts his shirt…Wait for it….Lick! We named her “Shi Shi” (pronounced Shy Shy) as we hoped to have her follow us all the way to Shi Shi Beach on the Washington Coast. After about five minutes break, Shi Shi actually came back for licks a second time! Video by Rick Wiggins.
