Day 88: December 22, 2004 - The Lost Sheep(s)

by Christian Williams
"What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost?"

by Karen Williams
Apparently someone in Utah wasn't familiar with this passage, because the two adult sheep not only got lost, but had offspring in the wilderness. We were fortunate enough to find them, but they didn't heed our warning to return to the fold. You can tell that the lamb was born in the wild because its tail has not been docked (cut), whereas the adult sheep were domestic with docked tails. Unlike mountain sheep, which were reintroduced into the park, we don't think these sheep were supposed to be there.

365 Days in Zion is a photo experience by Karen and Christian Williams. Together, we spent an entire year in Zion National Park amidst snow, rain, flash floods, brush fires, and the beautiful sunny blue skies that typify Southern Utah in the United States of America.
