When the Bighorn Sheep come down from the high mountains this time of year because the snow is too deep to find enough grass to eat, it is usually later in the morning. By 3:00 pm or so, they are headed back up to the higher, safer grounds for the night.

On their way up, this herd of about 30 Bighorn Sheep walked right up our side yard, grazing as they strolled along. This was the last Ewe to pass by. She looked right in the window at me. I happened to have my camera ready… 🙂

So adorable! Look at that face!

I was walking home from town on Saturday when I saw this herd of about 30 Bighorn Sheep climbing up and all around the tall rocks. They were pretty high!

They maneuvered the rocks without caution and were loving all the photographers on the side of the road clicking away! I zoomed in on the first photograph so you could see them better. Pretty cool, don’t you think?

I took lots of photographs of the Bighorn Sheep the other day, high up on the rocks near our home in Estes Park. It was amazing to see them jump from one rock to the next, up so high.

I saw this one Ewe jump across the rocks and then her baby follow right after her. What an incredible sight! That was a pretty big jump!

This lone tree caught my attention on Castle Mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park as it grew out of this huge boulder.

I thought it was so pretty with the rocks and the dark blue sky as the backdrop.

It was a gorgeous morning to get out and take some photographs of the new snow. I especially love to photograph Lumpy Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is only about a 2 minute drive from our home and so spectacular!

These are the rocks where Tommy Caldwell, who recently climbed the Dawn Wall at El Capitan in Yosemite, first learned to climb. Very impressive! Estes Park is so proud of him!!

This Ewe had to dig pretty deep to get some of the grasses in our yard for lunch. I love her snow-covered face as she looks up at me.

Adorable, don’t you think?
