My first encounter with Red Rocks' Bighorn gals this year

Bighorn Sheep Ewes high above the north fork of Pine Creek.
I met them on route to Bridge Point around middday on March 13, 2008.
Red Rocks, Nevada.

Enjoy my whole slideshow from this day: Bridge Point

Re: Nice animals !

Thank you. I was happy to see them again. The one in the middle looked very familiar. I could swear I met her last spring. Greetings :)

Re: Yes

Thanks Dean. Red Rocks without bighorns would not be the same so I'm always happy to see them doing well. After I got my shots I moved back a few feet and all three of them sat down. It was nice to leave them calm and relaxed. On the way down from the peak we saw a bigger group of ewes with a tiny baby sheep among them. It was a great day with four encounters with sheep all together :)
