A Family Of Big Horn Sheep Were Just Adorable Here In Estes Park!

 

The Big Horn Sheep usually come down in March to eat after the heavy snows up in the mountains, but we’ve seen them several times so far this season. The snow must be pretty deep up there.

I took this photograph by the side the our road. I thought the three little ones were just adorable! They had come down for some grass to eat…it was much easier finding it under just a few inches of snow than way up there! Cute, aren’t they?

Here’s Looking At Ewe in Estes Park!

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!
