Big Horn Sheep, Red Peak
|[ Sizes: Orig | Small | Thumb ]|
As we crested the ridge-line that gave us access to the east bowl of Red Peak, we came across a divine sight: 40 big horn sheep grazing on the hillside. Gary, who had spent nearly his entire life in Breckenridge, had never seen a heard of big horns in the area. It was an amazing experience that reminded us that these areas need to be protected. We watched the graceful animals for around 30 minutes before continuing on our loop.
