PhotoHunter...Road!

Photohunt this week is...Road!

A mountain road near Jasper, Alberta...with the unending line of RV's and tourists stopping to look at and photograph the huge herd of big-horned sheep that own this road!

Here's two of the guys getting frisky and ready for a head-slamming fight...

...and this is what happens when I get a little too brave...and a little too close! One of the sheep broke away from his herd and challenged me for ownership of the road.
He won.

"May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand." ~ Irish blessing

I love your road photos!! The sheep are gorgeous!

Awwww, thanks!
They are darling, BUT they are so pissed off when they are 'jousting' with each other...they run full tilt towards each other and smash their foreheads together and it makes a thunderous CRACK! Then, they step back, shake it off and do it again, and again...
Thanks for posting,
Ciao,
Brenda

Kim:

That was way cool!

Thanks, Kim!
They are the funniest little guys...smashing their heads together and almost smiling when they do it!
Must be a guy thing...you think?
Take care,
Ciao,
Brenda

Oh I love these! What a contrast between the rams and the RVs! My road post is up too if you have time to stop by. Have a great week!

Thanks, Anne!
I thought it was typical of the tourist invasion in this area...this was but a few of the long line of RV's screeching to a halt to get out and take that photo!!!
Ciao,
Brenda
