JACKSON, Wyo. — Ahh…winter time in Jackson, when you can grab a coffee at Town Square, drive less than ten minutes, and see dozens of bighorn horn sheep as well as the thousands of elk along the National Elk Refuge Road.
Buckrail reader Matthew Murphy captured this dramatic shot of three bighorn sheep appearing through the fog with the steep runs of Snow King Mountain Resort in the background.
Bighorn sheep normally stay high up in the mountains during the warmer months, but once the cooler weather comes, the sheep migrate down to Millers Butte on the National Elk Refuge.
The sheep can often be seen climbing, butting heads, eating grass, or taking a nap.
