Beating the Heat

3 p.m. It is 100 degrees in the city and a few degrees cooler in the canyon. Because of the temperature, the canyon is empty and nearly silent. A group of four immature mule deer take refuge in the creek-bottom. I am on top of the herd before they know it, startle them, and they flee into the brush.
