Thursday February 27, 2020 Queen’s Canyon, Kofa, Arizona
I spent last night camped at the Palm Canyon parking lot. I arrived just about dark. When I got out of the van I was greeted by some Alp type horns. The sounds were coming from up by the palms on the trail. I looked but couldn’t see anyone, but I sure could hear the horns. They played for around two hours before stopping for the night. I never did see who was playing.
The next morning I drove back down the road to pick up Gaelyn, a Blogger I met the night before. Her website is here, https://geogypsytraveler.com/ . We were going on a 4 wheel ride up Queen’s Canyon and a little hike.

Signal Peak Trial walk
On the way out we stopped at Skull Rock so Gaelyn could get some pictures.
Big horn sheep
There was a lady standing by the road looking up into the hills. She yelled out, Do you see the sheep up there. No.
I had her point them out and when I finally spotted them they put on quite a show. There were a bunch of them running around playing and butting horns. Doing some mating I think.
They were sure having a good time running around and jumping around. The lady said her husband was up the hill getting some good pictures of them with his telephoto stuff. I bet he got some real good pictures as they kept it up for over an hour.
Gaelyn and I continued our trip out, back to her camp spot.
Not an owl
By the time we got back to Gaelyn’s camp spot we were both pretty tired out. I said my goodbyes and drove up the road a bit to make camp for the night.
Nice day walking around the Kofa with Gaelyn.
