deer at ucsc

As I was biking down from Cowell at UCSC, I stopped to contemplate this large herd of deer in the east meadow.

The photo, looking east, was taken from the same location as the one below, which looks south. This is the part of the meadow where the building of a family student complex and a privately operated childcare unit are being contemplated. The UC Regents just signed up on the privatized plan but the story is not over.
