We saw the "old man" during a Valley of Fire tour today. He was just laying down in the shade around the corner and to the west of the poodle rock area. We were able to walk up to about 40 feet of him and got some good photos. I had not seen him for quite a few months and was worried that he finally died of old age but was so excited to see him alive and well today.
(see past blogs about "the old man")
Is this "the old man" ?
Compare the two photos from the first time I saw him to today.
I think it is the same ram!

Look at the markings above his nostrils. Yes, it is the same guy.
