Bighorn Sheep, Rocky Mountain National Park

 

Rocky Mountain National park is a great place to see big horn sheep. Above I was very lucky to see a group of big rams in their alpine habitat on trail ridge road that is the highest paved road. This famous road in Rocky Mountain National Park winds its way up until it gets above the tree line and makes its way through the delicate alpine ecosystem. Click here for high resolution pictures of these impressive rams: (Hi-Res Sequence). Click here for low resolution pictures of the rams: (Lo-Res Sequence).

At Yellowstone we saw females up close on the cliffs that surround the Northern entrance to the park near Gardener. You can see how well camoflouflaged they are and how they are often perched in precarioius positions high on the cliffs. Here are some high resolution shots (Hi-Res) (Hi-Res) (Hi-Res). Also, some low resolution shots: (Lo-Res) (Lo-Res) (Lo-Res) . You will likely see some hiking some of the higher peaks in New Mexico as well.

Here are slideshows of the best Big Horn Sheep photos: (Lo-Res) (Hi-Res).
