A small herd of pronghorn antelope graze near the Escalante Canyon exit from U.S. Highway 50. These animals were losing their winter coat. Pronghorns are the fastest land animal in North America and can reach speeds of 60 miles per hour, according the the National Wildlife Federation. In the 1960s, they were reintroduced to the area between Grand Junction and Delta. They are not large ungulates weighing only 90 to 150 pounds.
