Betsy and I were beginning to feel a little disappointed as we drove along the Wildlife Loop in Custer State Park — we hadn’t seen any wildlife at all. But then, as we approached a curve, we noticed several cars over on the side of the road. We of course pulled over as well and spotted these guys on the side of a hill above the road.
This was the first time on the trip that we were able to get a good close look at bighorn sheep. Those horns are absolutely amazing. I got these photos with my telephoto lens.
We tried to get into a position where the sheep didn’t have their backs to us, but this is the best we could do. I think these are magnificent animals.
