One of the joys I get is seeing the bighorn sheep from time to time. Here are a few photos that I captured on a return trip from Lake Chelan.

Wow, Don... I have seen them along that route but never that close.  How close were you?  Do you have some super telephoto or were they near the road?

Yeah, I have a Zoom camera that allows me to close up photos. It is a Canon SX60.

Those are wonderful photos Donald. Good thing you had your zoom lens. Don't want to get too close to those horns.

Those are wonderful pictures of the Bighorns, Donald.  They seem content in their environment.
