Bighorn Sheep || Near Taos, New Mexico
I was hiking along the rim of the Rio Grande Gorge last Sunday and noticed a distant herd of bighorn sheep on the other side of the canyon. Some were grazing on the top. Others were walking along the near vertical rock face of the canyon wall. As I started to move on I suddenly saw this one standing in front of me. I stopped. We watched each other. She stood there for a moment, just enough time for me to take a few photographs, then turned and disappeared over the edge.
