Nine bighorn sheep crossing...

Nine bighorn sheep crossing the East Fork Lostine River Valley. It was amazing, they ran down a boulder field, splashed across the river, and up the other side of the valley into the forest in about a minute. July 17, 2005

absolutely great stuff

I've yet to see a bighorn in the wild and yet you captured nine of them in one shot. It must have been amazing to see what you did.

Re: absolutely great stuff

Thanks Dean. They crossed the trail so close in front of us that it scared/startled Shelby, who inturn scared me! They crossed one at a time, each pausing to check us out before stepping across the trail. Kind of funny, about a mile back a guy coming up the trail had asked us if we had seen any animals because he really wanted to photograph some. After that I had mentioned to Shelby that we never see any wildlife other than squirrels. I guess we have now, still waiting to see a mountain goat though.

I think I could spend ever weekend in that area and be quite happy. Very nice place.
