Bighorn Sheep Ewes! - Near Buena Vista, Colorado
(April 7, 2008)
|Bighorn Sheep Ewes Spotted On Cottonwood Pass Road
Late in the afternoon, I drove up Cottonwood Pass Road for a leisurely drive
and spotted a cluster of bighorn sheep ewes intently eating on the roadside. With camera in hand, I couldn't
resist taking pictures.

Bighorn sheep ewe #74 did a great job acting natural as I snap numerous photos!
|Two Sharp Photos
The right photo might be the best of this bunch. The quality is sharp and that
bighorn sheep ewes stood strong and proud!

I sat in my vehicle for about ten minutes, just relaxing, listening to music and sending a text
message to friends about the bighorn sheep ewes.
Then I felt inspired to walk out on the road and get a picture with myself and the bighorn heep ewes!
Oops! I cut myself off ...
There. Much better!

Two more scenery photos.

the Cottonwood Lake
and the Spring Canyon Retreat Center. That large mountain is part of the southern side
of Mt. Princeton's range.
