The Female Bighorn

The Female Bighorn sheep: (Ovis canadensis)

 

I decided to go for a hike in the Colorado Rockies today and while on the walk, this female mountain goat came up over a ledge, later a second walked up. I was rather surprised that I came within 40 to 50 feet from them before they decided to leave. Almost s if they were as curios about me as was about them.
