It's that time of the year when the mothers and their offspring in the Rocky Mountain Sheep herds break off into nursery groups, while the mature rams battle it out for breeding rights at the higher elevations.
This group was originally on a high cliff shelf but eventually all members made their way down to take in some refreshment at the river. And then each little grouping of a Mum & a youngster(s) returned to their original plateau, most likely for the evening and safe from predators. There was at least one set of twins (Photo #7), double the fun & double the trouble.
At this early age with assistance from genetics & the right "footwear", you have to admire their skill at manoeuvring the uneven boulders with the river rushing below. And it's so effortless, with no looking down.
