Little Big Horn



We had a brush with another local hiker the other day. I couldn't believe our luck when this little Big Horn Ram walked right by us on our walkabout above Lovely Ouray…as though we were his "peeps." Big Horn Sheep are usually headed up to "lamb" in the high country by now, but we keep seeing stragglers. Must be due the the snow we keep getting around here; it's screws up instincts as well as plans. Check out the photos...

  1. Cool! I was told I should see a lot of these guys around Cody. I am in Fort Collins right now waiting for the storm to come through on Sunday. I hope to head out towards Cody on Tuesday morning. I hope you are feeling better and have a good recovery.

    Hope you're on the mend and will be back out there on the trails soon.

  8. Now that is really cool! A big horn buddy. He doesn't look like he has enough wool to keep him warm over this past winter though. Hope your recovery is right on schedule.

  9. What a nice surprise! Keep following doctor's orders. (I don't know how seriously to take that comment myself, knowing your tendency to bend the rules!)
