Getting such a beautiful goat was such a rewarding experience. I learned a lot about myself. Also my bond between my cousins and I grew to unbreakable. There’s so much sacrifice and service that goes into a trip like this. @andersonfamilyoutdoors
is the most selfless person I know, and he made this expedition such a fun time. I look forward to the future when we have more epic hunts like this.
This photo pretty much sums up the last month, sheep camp has been a blast, thank you to everyone involved in the memories that were made. Off to the next adventure, next stop dease lake
I honestly love it out there so much and to be able to share it with you makes it pretty special!
If you look closely, you'll see my husband pedaling alone on a tandem bike being chased by an angry bighorn ram. Within seconds the entire herd joined the chase.
We stopped so I could take a photo of the peaceful herd of sheep grazing on the mountain. The herd came down from the mountain, walked right past me, and pursued the guy patiently waiting on the tandem bike.
Eventually he won the race and it was a fine opportunity for him to test out his new knee.
We saw a bear a few miles down the trail...and yes, we stopped so I could snap a shot of the bear.

My uncle held off filling his sheep tag yesterday, but we had a blast getting within 40-50 yards of these two bighorns at about 9500’ elevation. We saw quite a few sheep and lots of other wildlife over the past few days, but still looking for one of the monster rams that live in this district. 📷: my uncle’s friend Mark through the spotting scope
There’s a certain allure to wild sheep and goats. I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in the mountains as well, but I’ve got a bottomless well of respect and awe for these tough-as-nails creatures.
