An ewe with twin lambs wander the Colorado National Monument at sunset. I got really lucky in being able to observe the herd of Desert Bighorn sheep in the Colorado National Monument last week. On my first day I spotted the herd way up on the cliffs silhouetted against the clouds at sunset. This ewe trailed behind the rest because the little ones had some slight trouble getting to the top allowing me to get this shot before they disappeared.
