Playing peek-a-boo

When entering or leaving Estes Park via HW 34-Big Thompson Canyon, you should always be on the outlook for Bighorn Sheep. On my last trip down HW 34 heading back to Iowa, we saw a large herd; a few rams, several ewes and their lambs. I was watching this ewe (see image below) move around off to the side of the extended family. With every step, she was looking downhill, watching the traffic and the people milling around watching them. She paused, ate a little grass, ate some leaves from the bush and poked her head out staring directly towards me. I smiled and thought, she is playing "peek-a-boo".
