Yakima River Canyon

This week we found ourselves in the Yakima area of Washington, and went for a drive to explore it more and search for wildlife. (Picture a stopped car with four people squinting up into the hills through binoculars and you have my family.)

We admired the craggy cliffs of basalt jutting out of the canyon. The big-horn sheep climb up with their lambs to protect them from predators in the spring. Can you believe the safest place for them is at the edge of these cliffs?
 We found a herd of sheep grazing with two rams trying to impress the ladies. They weren't interested.

What wildlife have you spotted recently?
