Fozen Misery

Bighorn sheep live among the rocky mountains high up in elevation. As winter approaches, they migrate to lower elevations to survive the season's harsh conditions. However, this doesn't mean they're out of harm's way. This ewe stands on a narrow ledge struggling to protect itself from the blizzard. An experience that could result in mortality.
