There's something magical about fall in Wyoming. And while we may be in the heart of summer, we think it's never too early to start planning a fall trip to Wind River Country. 

Here's why: 
-Fly-fishing is prime 
-The air is crisp and delicious 
-Quaking aspens turn from green to yellow, painting the landscapes in gold

Just some rams and ewes, nothing to see here. 😉

A few fun facts about bighorn sheep: 
-Males have curved horns, while horns on females are shorter and less curved.
-Their two-toed split hooves help with balance and grip, which is why they do so well walking along rocky cliffs and narrow ledges.
-Males will often butt their heads, usually for mating rights and/or dominance. 

For more on bighorn sheep, be sure to stop by the National Bighorn Sheep Center in Dubois, Wyoming.

“A mountain is the best medicine for a troubled mind. Seldom does man ponder his own insignificance. He thinks he is master of all things. He thinks the world is his without bonds. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Only when he tramps the mountains alone, communing with nature, observing other insignificant creatures about him, to come and go as he will, does he awaken to his own short-lived presence on earth.” -Finis Mitchell
