POTD: Badlands BighornsBadlands Bighorns Badlands National Park, South Dakota 2014

We were pleasantly surprised to come across a herd of bighorn sheep making their way up to the grasslands at the top of the badlands. (This was only a portion of the herd.) What was even more surprising (and also quite pleasant) was that there were only 15 or 20 tourists like ourselves who had stopped to see them. That’s quite a contrast to Yellowstone National Park where even a small group of animals can often attract a huge crowd of people and back up traffic for a mile or two.]]>
