The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, working with the Bureau of Land Management and the Taos Pueblo, have augmented a population of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep in the Rio Grande Gorge north of the Orilla Verde Recreation Area. The area is now known as the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument.
I passed by this mature Bighorn while rafting the Taos Box section of the Rio Grande, New Mexico.
