OCTOBER 12, 2009 – I have received many searches for Big Horn Sheep. This recent article by Jean Norman along with related photos really provides some great insight to the some of the issues these big boys face on a daily basis. I personally prefer to see them out more in the wilds along the trail which is a rare sight indeed. This park location where the sheep are photographed is only a block off the trail so one can make a quick side trip while riding trail through Boulder City. The park is located off of Ville Drive and is called the “Hemenway Valley Park”.

The desert bighorn sheep that live in the River Mountains in Boulder City, seen here on a recent weekday morning, make their way down to Hemenway Park almost every morning. City officials have voiced concerns about the sheep as traffic in the area they roam is set to increase next year with the opening of the new Hoover Dam bypass bridge.
