Although we searched again in the usual spots where Bighorn sheep are normally found none were located in the morning. We stopped again for brunch, and one of our participants came and told us that the Bighorn sheep were right on the corner on route 16. We went and photograph them. The sheep were both down by the river and up on the ridge by the railroad tracks. We climbed up and were photographing them. There was approximately a total of 47 sheep with a young ram in charge of the flock. They were good photo opportunities. I enjoyed watching a kid walking on the railroad track. The sheep were not afraid of us, and were used to the trains, in fact, when one train came and and the engine sounded the whistle, the sheep moved off of the tracks without any hesitation.

Interesting part about the train, was most of the cars were covered with graffiti.

After we finished photographing the sheep, we again went looking for more animals and photographed again a number of elk.
