Big Horn Sheep prefer rocky, hard-to-reach slopes of mountains alternating with flat areas. They are usually found in small groups. These most beautiful cloven-hoofed individuals, whose heads are adorned with amazing horns are a true masterpiece of nature. From the cold and winds, they are kept warm by thick, long, dense wool.

Big Horn Sheep in Los Angeles - Best Season

In winter, when it is snowy and cold in the mountains, Big Horn Sheep descend to the lower levels. It is in this season that you can meet them if you go hiking to Waterman, Pleasant View Ridge, and possibly Bridge to Nowhere. They are very shy, so it is hard to take a good photo with them. Still, you should try.
