Description

Midday in early December finds a small group (five) of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep browsing on the hillsides above Hells Canyon, the deepest (up to 7200 feet) and one of the most rugged river gorges in the continental United States. This wild species has been decimated numerous times when domesticated species have been introduced into the area.
