This picture was taken on the 49 Palms trail. My wife first spotted the Big Horn sheep in distance. As we approached they got curious about us as much as we were about them and chose a high perch to observe their oncoming visitors. Their perch could not have been better as it had a backdrop of the setting sun with the sky shaded in beautiful hues of orange, yellow, pink and blue. The magnificent backdrop was just perfect and in this picture it almost looks like the sheep stopped to pose for us.
