The Sheep of West Side Road

I’ve stated previously that I love West Side Road.  One of the reasons I love the road, is the resident herd of California Big Horn Sheep.  Whenever I need a little dose of Mother Nature, West Side Road will produce sheep for me, four out of five tries.

I had a busy week this week with my birthday, an impending visit from my daughter and three of her friends, finishing up two jobs and starting a new one, without a day off in between.  Taking a road trip just wasn’t in the picture.  That’s how it goes.  Sometimes life gets in the way.

But that gives me the perfect excuse to introduce my pals, the sheep of West Side Road.  I hope they give you as much pleasure as they give me.
