We just returned from desert sheep scouting and didn't see any sheep but we did see evidence that they're there.
We should feel like losers for not seeing any sheep but yet we feel like winners for finding some great access roads and entry points into the core areas. "winner"
Along on the trip was my son, of course since the desert sheep tag is his permit, my brother and one of my sons-in-law. Everyone is a good hand to have around and it was one of those wonderful trips in spite of the fact that we battled rain, flash floods, sticky gumbo mud, rock slides, impassible roads, biting insects, high humidity and hot conditions. WE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! Oh, and we even had a bobcat bounce across the riverbed in front of us.
The scenery was second to none! Vistas were enjoyed which ranged from vast buttes to hoodoos and balancing rock. Sunsets were spectacular with the big clouds in the area. All the desert flora was in bloom and everything was green. Water was plentiful because of the constant storms of the past month.
Sufficient to say, it was one of those magical trips and will never be forgotten.
PS: My son and I will go though our pics and post-up some stuff so this thread won't be quite so boring.
