Ascent Trip ReportEnjoyed watching a few Bighorn Sheep in the distance. They were keeping a close eye on us too. On the way down we were able to peak over a ridge and see two of them high up on a pinnacle about straight out from us. Got a good picture.
Years later I came back so my children could enjoy the same experience, but the trail was closed to keep the sheep from being disturbed. We climbed Chiquita Mountain instead.
