Descending the trail to Serpent Lake from the Santa Barbara Divide in the Pecos Wilderness, NM, we encountered a big horn sheep. He kept advancing and we kept a downed log between us and his big horns. He finally stopped to eye us from 10 feet away, while five other sheep went behind us. Surrounded by Big Horn Sheep!
