Holy Sheeeep in Idaho!

I recently spent some time in Idaho at my boss’s summer camp by Cascade Lake. It was a beautiful site to behold. We had so much fun connecting with each other and connecting with nature. I spent the sunrises on water’s edge taking pix of the scenes and the wildlife. I LOVED IT!  (See below for some info about the Basque sheepherders on our last day.)

On our last day at the camp, we were getting ready to leave when all of a sudden we heard a cowbell and a rumbling come from down the dirt road. Shortly thereafter, we saw a gigantic herd of sheep coming up the road.

I attempted to run to get my gear, but due to my recent double hernia surgery, that attempt brought great pain. One of my colleagues grabbed the gear for me and I hobbled to get the images you see below.  I love the images, but they do not tell the complete story. I really need to get pix of the shepherd and the 4 dogs that keep the sheep in line.

You will notice in the last picture, I was able to show the dog that holds up the rear of the caravan. He was old and interesting. As soon as I came to the road, he stopped right by me, kept his distance and carefully watched me. It was not until I took the final pix of the sheep did he trot to catch up with the tail of the herd.

One thought on “Holy Sheeeep in Idaho!

  1. In 2014, Abby and I ran into a similar situation but with cattle in Mancos, Colorado. They came through town because it was the only way to get across the Mancos River.
