Yellowstone- Pronghorn & Bighorn

Around midday we headed out the north entrance of the park to a spot where pronghorn are known to hang out and we were not disappointed.  This male was so comfortable with us that he never even got up as we approached to head and shoulder distance.

We then proceeded to a location where I had found some elk a few days previously and were pleasantly surprised to find a family of bighorn sheep.  This male rested comfortably while the ewes and lambs grazed nearby.

When the other sheep had moved off some distance he decided it was time to join them and off he went.
