Bighorn Sheep Beneath the Garden Wall

Seen along the Highline Trail between Logan Pass and Granite Park Chalet. This sheep and others were almost within petting distance, but I wasn't taking chances with those horns.

Glacier National Park, MT-- August 2003

Thanks...

for the great photo. I wonder if I have the same ram in some of my shots? None of mine are like this. Mostly groups shots from a distance. I have added it to the Big Horn page.

Re: Thanks...

This one was in a group of several right off the trail. They were on a ledge just a few feet above me and really didn't care about me. I am used to mountain goats being so tolerant, but not bighorns. Maybe these were Logan Pass regulars who had strayed a little! It was quite a morning though-- three grizzlies (including two cubs), then some mule deer on the trail, then the bighorns, and finally some mountain goats (which also let me get practically next to them).

I love days like that. I have had a few days that stand out in my memory. One day I during archery season I saw like 35 elk and 7 black bears. Awesome day.
