Horns of Bigness


On our way home from Utah we made it a point to drive through Rocky Mountain National Park so we could drive the Trail Ridge Drive.  Along the summits in alpine fields you’ll often see bighorns grazing off in the distance, I was in luck this day since this fella didn’t stay way off in the distance.

As a matter of fact he decided to join his buddies right near the road side.  One of them decided he would show his, “best” side.

It is a little humbling standing just 20 feet away from a wild animal who can crush you like a pop can with nothing but the hood of your truck between you an it.  Thankfully they were more interested in grazing than anything else, unlike the elk who were in rut and charging at everything that moved.
