Any word on the orientation this year? I know the dates of the count are set. I searched and didn't find any info online for the orientation or the count.

I am looking forward to doing the count again. Last year was my first year and I enjoyed it enough to want to come back.

3rd and 4th Groves Palm Canyon we had 21 sheep. In Palm Canyon it seemed more sheep than last year, and for sure more lambs. More water than last year too. Weather was actually pleasant, for July in Borrego anyway.

We had 40 unique sheep in Rattlesnake Spring, about 50% less than normal, weather was much cooler and sheep did not seem interested in drinking, many just lounged around the water hole all day without drinking at all. I did not take my heavy digital camera and 600mm lens this year, instead I just took a trail camera and hung on it on a mesquite nearby, here is my meager attempt at stitching together the hundreds of photos and videos it captured over the 3 day weekend.

Nice use of the trail camera Daren, animals don't seem spooked by it at all. Good soundtrack. - Jim dsefcik wrote:
