ZAC guide and canyoneer extraordinaire Tom Jones “shot” this herd of Desert Bighorn sheep on his way home recently, after yet another adventure off the beaten path. Tom’s picture illustrates 1) how easy and common it is to see bighorns along State Route 9 on Zion’s East Side, and 2) how lucky the locals are here to live in such close proximity to beautiful wildlife. Thanks to Tom for posting these bighorned beasts.
