Every time I drive up the mountain to visit my horses, I drive by Bighorn. Bighorn is an expensive ($$$$$$) housing development at the base of Highway 74. Many homes there have wonderful views of the valley. Unfortunately, they are also close to the REAL bighorn habitat...(sigh...) So, instead of viewing actual bighorn, we, the public, are treated to these statues. Fortunately, the city council just vetoed another developer's plans for more encroachment on the bighorn habitat (probably due to our economy), so...at least for now...the sheep are protected from further development of their already shrinking habitat. They do wander down into a couple of nearby developments and chew on the hibiscus and lawns! Once in a while our local paper does a photo shoot of this. However, I would prefer to see them in the wild, free in their own territory. That's My World for Tuesday, May 12, 2009.
