We Love Ewe

Pictured here are big horn sheep on the side of Pikes Peak — above is a female (ewe) with three little ones (lambs). This day we were fortunate to see many ewes along the side of the road leading up to the peak. 

In the second photo you can see the visitor's center atop Pike's Peak (14,115 feet) (Click photo to enlarge).

Ewes typically lives 10-14 years and weigh between 125-200 pounds. It is estimated that only 145 big horns live on Pike's Peak (2019).
