A Deer Friend in Solvang, California - Memorial:
The View from My Bicycle

By Marianne Schwab | Best Travel Deals Tips Blog

We see white crosses by the road everyday as a memorial to a poor soul who has lost their life by the roadside. It's a lovely tribute and this one caught my eye on the view from my bicycle in Solvang, California where someone had placed this memorial for a deer friend. I spotted it while I was cycling on the Solvang Prelude 35-mile bike ride course.

How often do we see the Deer Crossing signs on old country roads? We never think that there's a real reason for caution. This was a lovely tribute by a nature lover. Up the road, I also saw a white cross labeled, "Mama Deer" -- so sad.

Bike riding in Solvang, California, is a visual feast of country sights that include ostrich farrms, miniature horses, happy California cows, and lots of vineyards. If you're a cyclist and would like to participate in the Solvang Century and cycle through this lovely patch of California countryside, go to BikeScor.com.
