SUNNYSIDE, Carbon County, Utah – Some Utahns got an up-close look at bighorn sheep this weekend.

The Division of Wildlife Resources held a viewing party this weekend in the mountainous community of Sunnyside. Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep spend the summer near the roadway eating native plants and drinking from the trail creeks, people can see them without much effort.

The sheep will stay in the area until fall.
