03/25/2016 Trip Notes: While walking along Rocky Gap Road on our return hike to La Madre Spring & Dam, west of the Willow Springs Picnic Area, I spotted more than four Desert Bighorn Sheep roaming the cliffs on the north side of the road. Even though I have spent considerable time hiking trails throughout the Red Rock Canyon Park, this was only the second time I have spotted Bighorns. To me, the other surprising thing, was that this was around 12:30 in the afternoon. I was under the impression that you always had a better chance of observing Desert Bighorn Sheep during the early morning or late afternoon hours.
