Wildlife on the cliffs

Look for Bighorn Sheep up on the cliffs while in Gunsight Notch Canyon. We saw this pair, a Ram and an Ewe. One little Lamb was nearby down in the canyon and later rejoined the pair.

This is not a great wildlife shot by my standards, but I wanted to add it to Gunsight Notch Peak page as Red Rock Bighorns like the whole Pine Creek area a lot in spring and there is a high chance to see them on this hike.

great catch!

looks esp. cool with the varnished (smooth looking) sandstone they're on.

Re: great catch!

Thanks. Notice how comfortable the ram is on the ledge. It was a long drop below him. The lamb refused to follow mom and went up on the other side to join them both.
It's always such a treat to watch these animals.
