13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Big Horn Sheep in the Grand Canyon

A female big horn sheep (a ewe) was jumping from ledge to ledge as we hiked in the Grand Canyon. We were insanely close to her, but she didn't seem bothered by it all. As we looked around more we could see another mother and her baby in the far distance.
