I was recently camped in a nice USFS campground N of Ketchum, ID. I looked out my back window and saw hundreds of sheep moving into the meadow behind me! One of the most bizarre happenings in my many years of ramblin'. [emoticon]

Edit: Thanks time2roll! I corrected the problem with photos not displaying! Need %20 for space characters.

Have encountered them several times over the years in NFs. We were jeeping some backwoods roads once in Medicine Bow NF and met a large flock of sheep with the sheepherders and their wagon. One of the Basque herders loped his horse over and asked for cigarettes. We don't smoke though so couldn't help.

appears to be single space instead of 2 spaces between date and image number.
Looks like all the picture links since July are using 2 spaces

Is that a sheep dog in the foreground? What breed is that?

I hope the sheepherder doesn't show up with his clippers. It would be "shear" panic!

A tip for naming pics is to add an underline (shift of the dash) _ for any spaces. Doesn't affect readability and meets all UNC, even the older specs [emoticon]
