Battle Of The Bighorn

While in Colorado, driving along the Arkansas River between Salida and Canon City, we came across a small herd of Bighorn Sheep grazing just on the other side of the river. I'm sure I don't have to tell you how exciting it was to be only 50-60 feet away from such beautiful and prestigious animals. It's no wonder why the Bighorn Sheep is the Colorado state animal.
