Lori Jones works in a little gift shop and convenience store at the Horsetooth Inn and RV Park.
One day a doe suddenly entered the store and looked around. Lori found it hilarious that the doe seemed to be checking out the chips and sunglasses sections.
The doe is actually the mother of a family of deer that can be seen around the area.
While holding a peanut bar in one hand as bait, Lori escorted the doe outside. But it wasn’t the last time Lori would see the doe.
After 30 minutes, the doe came back with her family of three twin deer and a young buck. The young ones waited at the door while the doe entered the store, all the way to the counter.
Finally, Lori was able to attract the curious family away from her store with the help of food, but not before taking some incredible photos up close with her phone.
“It was just a lovely thing to see, the population of wildlife here is just astounding. We have mountain lions, bighorn sheep, deer, raccoons — you name it. They have to fend for themselves. That’s nature. But I think they’re all wonderful,” she said.
