Sometimes you have to pull over on a long drive and take a nap. Sometimes you wake up to a herd of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep surrounding your car. I got to spend some time with this lady and her herd as she used my car as a barricade to protect herself from approaching tourists (stay inside your cars around wild animals please!). Since I moved to the west coast, I've constantly been on the lookout for Bighorns. There are three subspecies which occupy separate areas in North America- the Rocky Mountain, Sierra Nevada, and desert bighorn sheep. They are relatives of goats, and have split hooves with rough bottoms for a natural grip that helps them move easily about rugged mountain terrains. Thanks to their impeccable balance, bighorn sheep can stand on ledges as small as 2 inches wide and can jump from ledge to ledge over spans as wide as 20 feet.
