On Labor Day weekend, the hubs and I rode our bikes into Waterton Canyon. It's a 6 or 7 mile dirt rode that goes up a canyon into the foothills. As you ride along the river, there are beautiful views and usually you can see some wildlife. This year, two bear cubs have been spotted along the road. We were hoping to see those guys but no luck. We did, however, see a lot of bighorn sheep up close and personal. Love these sheep. It was just before the start of mating season, so they weren't too frisky yet. This was a mama with some of her girlfriends and kids. (Yes, I know that isn't even close to the proper wording for them.) She started chasing me up the road and kind of freaked me out. I think she knew that and was taunting me.
I love my zoom lens. It got up close and personal to some butterflies.
We rode to the top of the canyon where the resevoir is, and there were a lot of bighorn sheep hanging out at the top. Some of the big daddys!
It was beautiful at the top with the water spraying out from the resevoir. I've never been to the top before.
This guy was stunning, and then he started walking toward us so we backed off quickly.
You can see where their horns get dented from fighting each other for the females.
Overall, it was a beautiful and fun afternoon!
