Wildlife and a Yurt Tour

There has been a lot of wildlife around the yurt lately. Looking across the valley with binoculars I've spotted a bunch of Dall Sheep and some black bears. Below is a picture of the mountains across the valley. In this picture there are at least 4 black bears and a herd of 20 sheep. The red circles are where the black bears are and the blue circle is where the herd of sheep is.

Here is a close up of part of that blue circle and pat of the herd of sheep.

Today we also had a flock of about 100 crane/stork like birds fly over the yurt. We think they are sandhill cranes but are not entirely sure.

I put together a quick yurt tour. Careful, it might take a bit to down load and I might have swung the camera around too fast a few times so don't get dizzy. But, here it is.
