Desert Bighorn Sheep
6.21.17 – I stumbled upon a group of sheep while out for a short hike in the Valley of Fire. They seemed entirely apathetic to my presence and thoroughly oblivious to the 119º heat. It’s easy to see how they differ physically from their cousins in the Rocky Mountains, seen here and here, due to the climate and landscape in which they each reside. I was really entranced by this ram’s beautiful horns.
