Desert Bighorn Ram in the Valley of Fire

I took this photo on July 26, 2011 and am very proud of it. First of all, he was a little hard to spot because he was quite a ways away. We spotted him first closer to the road, but when we approached for a better photo, he got up and wandered away. Later, on the way back through that area I spotted him laying down again but in a much more majestic place.

We cannot overlook the importance of wild country as a source of inspiration,
to which we give expression in writing, in poetry, drawing and painting, in mountaineering,
or in just being there.
