Although the Mount Williamson herd is one of the three surviving natural herds of Sierra bighorn, very little is known about the movements of these sheep. Their northern boundary is Kearsarge Pass; in the south their range extends nearly as far as Mount Whitney. It can be very difficult to locate and observe sheep in this rugged terrain, and the population is quite small, totaling only about 15 animals in 2010-2011.

Check out Jane Kim’s Migrating Mural project! The first mural, completed in November, features Mount Williamson itself.
