With only a couple of hours to spare I ran up to the Bighorn Sheep range as I heard there were some large rams down. This is the season to witness their incredible fighting for dominance. I found only a small band way out on the meadow grazing with some browsing deer near the Glacier trailhead and did spot one big fellow way high on the ridge. I watched him traverse it for some time but all were too far away for pictures. It was a beautiful afternoon although pretty cool with a stiff wind blowing. The Ramshorn Peak over the Dubois badlands was an incredible late afternoon photo opportunity.

Hi Gary, vous êtes rapide dans les publications!!! et moi beaucoup moins! Mais j'ai l'immense plaisir de pouvoir admirer l'évolution de votre peinture Elk et celle avec ce merveilleux ciel qui surplombe ce paysage profond.
Tout prend forme petit à petit... et de façon étonnante et cela m'enchante.
Quelle beau paysage que la photo de cette dernière publication.
Bisous
