Ah, yes, it is that time of the year and love is in the air for the bighorn sheep. Of course, the love may not always be reciprocated, as was the case with this pair. The young ram was definitely in the mood but his potential partner, well, the ewe wanted no part of his overtures.
They were a good ways down the canyon and I heard them come bounding down onto the road, initially headed the other way. She made an abrupt u-turn and they came running up the road at a full sprint. After passing, she bounded back up the side of the canyon and he, realizing it was not meant to be, gave up the chase.
