|The lambs were swept away on this section of river.|
See below for a picture of this same stretch of water
during a return trip in September.

The Rocky Mountain Bighorn is a species in peril. The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center in Dubois, Wyoming encourages stewardship of bighorns and of all wildlife and wild places. If you're interested in joining this organization (I have) or in learning more about Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep visit this address: http://www.bighorn.org/
Below is a photo, taken several months later, of the same stretch of river where the lambs were swept away; the high waters have subsided. Notice how placid the water is—much safer too.
