Here's closer look:
Here's the preliminary drawing:
Do you see what I changed?
The closest I have come to seeing a bighorn sheep in person is the diorama at the Academy of Natural Sciences here in Philly, but I've spent LOTS of time looking.
I know I've been near sheep... I've even seen their tracks in snow on Mount Washburn in Yellowstone, but I haven't been able to spot them. My boyfriend Zack and I have seen lots of signs like this:
But still no sheep sightings!
Here's just a few of the places I've tried:
|Arches National Park... Hey look! Sheep!|
|Zack looking in Canyonlands National Park|
|Bighorn National Forest... that's me, not sheep|
|Bighorn National Forest... they've got to be here!|
|Baronette Peak, Yellowstone. No Sheep, but we saw mountain goats|
|Mount Washburn, Yellowstone. We saw sheep prints in the snow|
|Death Canyon, Grand Teton National Park. I looked at these rocks with binoculars for ages!|
|Death Canyon, Grand Teton National Park. I'd seriously live here if I were a sheep.|
