Big Horn Sheep
One of my favourite things to do when I’m in Palm Springs is to visit the animals at the Living Desert Zoo. There you will find an assortment of animals like giraffes, lions, elephants, ostriches and birds of all kinds.
Another favourite event that I enjoy is to play a round of golf at the SilverRock resort in La Quinta. As a resident, I get to play this course for a reasonable dollar and enjoy a PGA championship course where the Bob Hope Invitational was played on.
Along the back nine, the fairways run along the canal and the mountains where often, big horn sheep comes down from the hills to drink water and to graze. I’ve seen them many times on the course but usually from afar.
This time was different because on hole # 16, a large male sheep was standing on the blue tees waiting for us. Luckily we were playing from the white tees so we stopped, took this picture and drove on. These are majestic looking animals but approach them carefully because they are still wild animals.
