Mule deer by the dozens continue to roam through the 25,000-acre Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, where the smoldering landscape of October 2003 has given way to thriving shrubbery and some saplings of pine and oak amid the blackened tree trunks. Take an early morning drive down Highway 79 through the park, and you'll likely spot deer on or near the road.
