    From everything I’ve read, the mountain goats don’t seem to care about humans visiting the Grand Canyon.

    With the Harry Reid thing and the f*you with the obamacare phone number I wondered where Mr. Benson would go today… Good job and great art.

    I stand corrected. I looked again and they are sheep.

    It wasn’t the teas party that trashed the parks, it was the nasty, defecation and other rubbish left by the Occuperies that cost local governments so much to repair.

    Forgot to mention.. I know, I volunteered to clean up after both demonstrations, After tea party, we left in two hours. After Occupiers, three days and rhe rest left to the city workers.

    Funny that. Wild sheep look like domestic goats and wild goats look like domestic sheep. Whoever first named them must have been on something wild.

    I’ll leave Benson alone today. For once he did a nice one.

    That was one of your better posts, and I concur. I would state however, that the National Park Service has done a very good job since its inception of trying to balance the needs of nature against the needs of the people that pay for the upkeep of these National Treasures. Without these people, they would have been exploited long ago by profit making industries, and now we and the animals would not have them.

    You know, it may be difficult for a modern conservative on these boards to believe this, but my own personal favorite of a president is Teddy Roosevelt! He along with such environmentalists of that time as John Muir, founded the National Park system. Thanks Teddy, for being a true conservative, in the best sense of the word!!!!

    Ovis canadensis nelsoni, the desert bighorn sheep, is adapted to the desert and can go weeks without visiting a water hole. Both mae, and female develop horns early in life, but the males horns can become massive It gets moisture from its diet of grasses and dew,or rock puddles. The subspecies name,nelsoni is in commemoration of the naturalist Edward Wilson Nelson(1855-1934)

    Keeping people out, at least most of the time, is the best thing that can happen to the national parks.

    Yes, I imagine some ninny trying to give the Bighorns Lays® potato chips.

    Terry Russel, in “On The Loose” has a very good bit on a deer shaking it’s antlers while standing on the silt filled Glen Canyon behind the dam.


    Sadly, due to human encroachment on habitat, and those idiotic protected burros, desert bighorn are in serious trouble in much of their range. Desert tortoise are even under greater threat, in part due to solar projects (not as green as assumed), private development of desert water aquifers to supply L.Al, but mostly idiots in ATVs and SUVs.

    If you ever have the chance , go to Glenwood Springs Co. On the north side of I70 is the old hotel Teddy frequented when he hunted , fished , and enjoyed those beautiful mountains. Tons of Teddy history in that hotel and town!
