wild big horn sheep sighting

This past holiday weekend, our family stayed with our long-time friends in La Quinta, California. They live on a golf course, which makes for lovely–albeit forbidden–walks along the course with majestic views. Just before we were ousted for carrying mimosas instead of golf clubs, we spotted some big horn sheep grazing on the golf course. When we spotted a whole herd of them navigating down the mountain, even the course marshall allowed us to stay to watch. It was that rare a sight!


If you look closely and ignore our shenanigans, you can see them coming down...

How lucky that we got to see such a rare sight!
