I went looking for the herd of bighorns that hang out in the vicinity of Taos Junction Bridge and the road to the rim. This time I spotted them spread out along the slope that lies directly below the road, with a group of rams less than 50 yds. away. Sure enough, there he was – Mr. Tough Guy.
After taking these photos, I looked across to the mountains and far rim. I saw a nice composition and took the following two photos. Only when I had these photos enlarged on the screen of my iMac did I see the sheep!
The Rio Grande Gorge is contained within the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, created by President Obama a few years ago so … PLEASE TAKE NOTE: Members of Congress and the Trump administration would like to reverse the Obama administration’s declaration of this and other national monuments. Let’s oppose this action!
