Hemenway Park

Hemenway Park in Boulder City (map) is a great place to have a picnic lunch and watch the bighorn sheep, especially during summer. The sheep are habituated to the presence of humans, but they are still wild animals, which are unpredictable. Don't get too close to them.

When the males get a good sniff of the female, they turn their head up and roll the upper lip up while doing some heavy sniffing.
