Horseshoe Park

Sheep Lakes, above, are 2 mi west of Aspenglen Campground on Hwy 34. These lakes are rich in minerals, attracting bighorn sheep. I saw no sheep during my stay although I drove by twice a day on my way to and from other places. The alluvial fan, top right, was created when a dam broke and water surged down Roaring River, into Fall River, taking out Aspenglen Campground. Right, Fall River calmly meanders through West Horseshoe Park. Photos taken at a viewing area on Hwy 34 above the park. They are scanned 35mm slides.
