Today’s post concludes the Bighorn Sheep posts from Colorado’s Waterton Canyon. I have included 3 very different photos in this post … each different, but with beauty in it’s own way.

First, here is a large Bighorn Sheep ram, lying in a patch of snow along Waterton Canyon:

This next image is a Bighorn Sheep ewe, standing on a very colorful rock … one covered with lichen, and just a touch of fresh snow:

During one of my recent posts, someone commented on the lichen that they observed on one of the rocks. Lichen is always a welcomed sight to me … lichen covering a rock seems to give the rock a nice dose of character!

And the third image is one I found while walking the canyon. The large, canyon rocks were quite impressive, but this one, with the colorful lines running through it, really grabbed my attention:


Awesome place … with awesome photo opps! Guess I’ll be walking the trails of Waterton Canyon again some day :o)
