Desert Bighorn, Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada.

I have visited and written about Valley of the Fire State Park before, but I still forget what a wonderful gem this place is – Southern Utah gets all the red rock attention, but this place is really sweet. 

I spent a fair amount of time with this guy – this was captured after sunset, I really prefer this time of day for these desert animals.  Otherwise the sun is just too harsh. 

I hope you don’t get too tired of photos from Valley of Fire, but I have a few I want to share over the next couple of days.

  1. That’s one place I wish I had explored more while living in the southwest. Especially knowing that there’s bighorn sheep there! Great shot and the colors look great!

  2. That really is a nice shot with the red background. Is there a section of the park that you have found that you see these? I have been several times and haven’t ran into them yet!

    Again, nice picture!

    Thanks Mike!

    Hi Chris, Thanks! This guy was in the Jumble of Rocks area near the Arch Campgrounds near the West entrance. I wasn’t looking for sheep, just hiking around and exploring when I stumbled upon this guy. I was able to find him again much later that day – definitely a nice treat!

  5. Hey Ron,

    Always enjoy your wildlife stuff – it’s good to see you shooting more of it. Keep it up and you’ll be back to peanut butter and jelly everyday. 🙂

    Thanks Carl – wildlife has to be my favorite subject – wildlife is just cool to watch even without the camera!

    You mean no more bread and water!
