      They are very curious animals and will stop to check you out for a short time. This is of course nice for the photographer! When I was a boy and on vacation in northern Michigan (which is much forested than where I live), my grandfather would take us on drives along the back roads at dusk, looking for deer. I guess the habit is still with me.

        I really enjoyed your pics! That is some very rugged country. And the pics of the sheep are excellent. It’s amazing how well they clamber across those rock-strewn slopes. I also really liked the close-ups of the flowers, delicate amidst that rocky landscape.

        Thanks for checking it out, Tom. Yeah, these mountain peaks are pretty high, and for instance, Mt. Langley, where I spotted the Bighorn sheep herd, is one of the 14ers (its elevations above 14K feet) in the Sierra Nevada. So, the terrains are quite rugged, the air is quite thin and nothing hardly grows above 13K (way past the tree line).

        Those flowers were taken at Twin Peaks East, one of the peaks in the west part of the San Gabriel Mountains (most known mountain being Mt. Baldy), and they are sort of hallmarks of the San Gabriel as well and as Bernardino Mountains, where Mt. San Gorgonio is located, which is near the Tarn where I saw the lone Bighorn sheep. And Mt. San Gorgonio (11,503 feet) is the tallest peak in Southern California, so people hike there often and train to hike in the Sierra Nevada. So, rugged is quit fitting. 🙂
