Wildlife in Las Vegas

More accurately, wildlife in Boulder City.

There are Bighorn sheep all over in the mountains here.  I occasionally see them when I work out at the water treatment plant at the Lake.  The best place to sheep-see is Hemmingway Wash Park, they come in every day to graze.  Spring is great because of all the baby kids, they are incredibly cute.

When he was just a kid himself, my son Aaron spotted a sheep on a trip in Arizona.  Not knowing what they were called, he settled for a description:  
 "Bare-Ass Curlyhorn"!

Needless to say, this is what I still call them.
heh heh
