HBL and I took the kids to check out some “real” wildlife several months back. When some friends of ours told us there are rams that roam free at Hemenway Park, they were not kidding! There are no fences separating them from us!
I was a little nervous about bringing my children there, but I was banking on them being used to humans. We kept our distance (I told HBL keep the car doors unlocked in case we needed to make a getaway) and admired them from afar.
I’ll tell you what, there is nothing like a lack of a protective barrier to remind you of how amazing and powerful animals are.
*FYI: Hemenway Park is located in Boulder City, Nevada – right next door to Lake Mead. If on your next trip to Las Vegas you want to check these guys out, make sure you go during the summer months (I took these pictures this past August), since I’ve heard they only come down from the mountains then.
