160. Ultimate Thrill

I was thrilled to death when we spotted a group of bighorn sheep trying to cross the waterfall to get to Sheep Valley.  The sheep would put their hooves in the water and then pull them out.  They never did cross the waterfall and I am sure it is due to all of the melting snow and how fast the waters have become.  This is another first….I have never seen bighorn sheep in the wild let alone trying to cross a waterfall!

I am linking this to Misty’s favorite Photo of the Week challenge
