Desert Bighorn Sheep (Ovis canadensis ssp. nelsoni)

Description

A Ranger had told me that Desert Bighorn Sheep had been showing up to drink at the small pond here. But with one camper van after the other arriving for the weekend, I wasn't really expecting to see any. However, there was scat everywhere around the pond area, more scattered than deer scat, and too big for rodents.
Dear @beartracker and @jim_carretta, what do you think? Thanks!!

These two made me laugh. One showed up with gummy sweets it must have found at a camp site. Then they perched around a picnic table and looked at me, "What's cooking good looking? When's dinner?" They must have a blast here with all the Thanksgiving campers.
