|Good morning, Robin. Good day for a bike ride?|
Greg needed to have a working day so the kids and I took off to go see a ranger program on Big Horn Sheep. Two years ago, in Badlands, we were fortunate enough to see a Desert Big Horn along side the road in the park. I made the mistake of saying to the kids, “You may never see another one of these . . . They are so hard to find!” Not 10 minutes later, we saw one sitting alongside the road . . . They have never let me forget it. The Desert Big Horns are easy to see at Zion, too. They like to hang out at the eastern end of the tunnel.
The Rocky Mountain Big Horns proved more elusive. We didn’t see any but we did get to attend a great presentation by a ranger about them. We learned a lot!
After that, we hit another visitor’s center (RMNP is loaded with them!) and then went back to the FMC for lunch. We pretty much veged the rest of the day -- napping and hanging out by the creek while poor Greg worked.
|The ranger talk on Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep was fascinating!|
|The kids walked around Bear Lake - well, Ruth walked. Gage ran it -- twice.|
|Ruth walked and thought deep thoughts.|
|We imagined the conversation when something like "Hi Ruth!" "Go away!"|
We headed back to camp to enjoy our last evening in Estes Park!
