Mongolia Monday- Busy Week

I’m now in Denver, staying at the home of the President of the Society of Animal Artists, Diane Mason. She and her husband drove me up into Rocky Mountains National Park yesterday. On the way, in the adjoining National Forest, we saw a good-sized group of bighorn sheep, including a ram, right by the road and, in the park, hundreds of elk and a lot of mule deer.

Once I’m home I’ll post some side by side photos of argali and bighorns and rocky mountain elk and marel/ red deer. The latter look almost alike and are in the same genus, Cervus, but are different species.

We’ll go back into the park this afternoon and I’m hoping to get some video of the sheep. Got some of the elk yesterday.
