Little Bighorns

I went out to the Black Hills this weekend to plant my new trail camera along a previously successful elk trail in Wind Cave National Park. On the drive through Custer State Park, I caught sight of a flock of bighorn ewes with four lambs among them. It was an unexpected sight because the last I heard, the local flock has not been reproducing since a 2005 pneumonia outbreak. Hopefully this is the start of a recovery.
