In the early 1990s I was working in Dinosaur National Monument as a fisheries biologist. We would do the fish sampling at night and often sleep during the day. I found a cave in which to sleep out of the heat. One time, when I was sleeping, I heard a commotion in the cave. I rolled over and this big ram had bedded down in the cave. Apparently, he had the same plan to escape the heat as did I. I had a camera with me. As I rolled over he left the cave and I snapped this shot on 35mm film. Utah

Wild horses are a topic of great debate. Should they be eliminated from our public hands or allowed to thrive. Having watched them a lot in recent years, I believe they need to remain. They are truly spectacular. Tooele County, Utah.
