Bighorn Sheep can spook easily, so when I pulled off the highway to watch about two-dozen of them grabbing a snack of leaves from these trees in late summer, they were already scattering to head up the rocky embankments.
NOTE: The address is only the approximate location of the "area" where the Bighorn Sheep, the gate with large-animal bridge, and another style of large-animal bridge were photographed with perhaps a quarter-mile average between the set of three photo-spheres.
The other two panoramas in the set of three (the one with the large-animal gate with a one-way bridge, and the other with another style of one-way bridge) were taken January 2013. This earlier one was taken in late summer of 2012; and the old 1995 Lincoln limo belonged to a friend whom I was delivering it to.
The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
