Queen Valley, Arizona
We took a short jeep ride out in Queen Valley on the E Hewitt Station Road looking for desert wildflowers. I bushwhacked off the trail to get a shot of Roblus Butte in the saguaros.
After taking a wrong turn in a wash, I spotted these four desert bighorn sheep on a steep cliff wall. Think they were coming down for a drink from the puddles left after the rain this weekend. They do wear their camouflage well against the chocolate color cliff.
They were very curious but as another jeep approached they darted off across the cliff face.
and then a leap of faith.. and it landed expertly with no fan fare.
