Agile Bighorn


Bighorn sheep are amazing creatures. I have seen them run up vertical rock faces and slam into one another without missing a step. Just trying to slowly climb up similar surfaces leaves me gasping for air and while I’m not a great physical specimen I’m not that out of shape. It is hard to tell from this photo, but this sheep was in the process of jumping over a bush while maintaining his balance on a cliff’s edge. He caused a few rocks to tumble off the ledge, but it never even seemed to phase him on his way up the side of this rocky hillside.
