Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area in Ashley National Forest in Utah is home to several bands of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. They are usually readily visible in several places in the area, including Red Canyon Overlook near where we were staying. However, on this trip they were elusive and we had only fleeting glimpses of them until the fourth day when a small band of five ewes rested among the pine cones while we photographed them from the vehicle.
