My favorite time to be in Yellowstone is the spring. Why? The babies. One of the reasons I like them is that they are so full of life. They run around and jump in the air just for the joy of it. The ones that run and jump the best are the bighorn lambs. And they do it on steep terrain. Most herbivore babies are kept in hiding for the first couple of weeks until they can keep up with their moms. Not lambs. It is reported that they climb as well as their mothers when they are only one day old. I guess that lamb in the last post walked out of there the next day.
Notice how well this little lamb blends into its habitat.
