Big horns

On Saturday we went paddling and slowed down to take a break when we looked to the bank I was shocked to see a great big big horn sheep getting a drink very close to me. I tried to grab my camera as fast as I could out of my gear bag, and the water proof bag needless to say I was not able to grab it quick enough although I did almost succeed in tipping myself. When I finally got the camera out I was able to take a ton of pictures as we observed them for almost an hour. As we sat there watching these amazing animals about 8 of them I was reminded what a great choice we made with the kayaks versus a boat. So many boaters passed by speeding along and did not even see these giants eating and playing along the riverside.

Moments like this make me want to drag me big camera along but the little one is the smarter choice.

There are sheep in this picture can you find them?
WOW look at that balance her can lick his bottom perched on a rock!
Look at me I am beautiful!
Max noticed this guy coming down a ravine and I quickly headed that way we had a stare down for about 10 minutes.
Here he is watching me closely as I got out of my boat to cool down in the water.

Awesome neighbors! Imagine what you could do with your "big" camera! I totally understand being conflicted about taking it along, ours stays home when there is any chance of water.
