Desert Bighorn Sheep along Lake Mojave

07/22/2014 Picture Notes: My most recent sighting of Bighorn Sheep was along the banks of Lake Mohave at it passed by the Eldorado Canyon area. Having launched from Willow Beach Marina, we made a six hour boating journey took us more than 30 miles up and down the river. On our return to the marina from the southern leg of the journey, this spotting occurred around 2:00 pm in the afternoon near a location known as Nelson’s Landing. Though the literature for the area notes the opportunities for seeing Bighorn Sheep, this was the only sighting we had all day. This flock of seven sheep is one of the largest groupings I have encountered.  Click here to read more on these animals … Desert Bighorn Sheep.
