Bighorn Grace the Grasslands

bighornFor those interested, there’s a band of Bighorn sheep in the lower pasture!” David Jessup called out over the ranch radio at about 9:30 this morning.

A group of us jumped at the news and headed out. Clear skies and the bright, warm rays of the sun made for a golden opportunity to view the band of bighorn.

The temperature was very comfortable, in the low 50’s and we were pleasantly rewarded with a good look at these majestic sheep.

Fortunately they weren’t too alarmed by our approaching which permitted us to get close enough to capture several good shots — we hope you enjoy them!
