I have been on this trail so many times that I have lost track! This was the first time ever that I got to see big horn sheep! My husband and I started out at 6:45 and we were only half a mile down the trail when he spotted 4 of them just below the ridge to our left! I don't know how he spotted them because I couldn't see them without my binoculars! We watched them walk around and feed before we headed on down the trail. We were just passed the caves when he spotted another one running along the ridge away from the caves! This one was close enough for even me to spot! Way cool! It was big too! Of course I didn't get a picture because it happened too fast and it was probably too far to get a decent one anyway. So onward to the saddle! My husband hadn't been up there since he was a boyscout and believe me that was a looooong time ago! He he! We went on out to the right to the overlook and low and behold there was a picnic table there! How inviting is that! We were out early enough that we didn't see a lot of people....on the way in. On the way out was another story! Glad we beat the crowds going in anyway!
