This Boulder City park on the way to Lake Mead wouldn’t warrant much attention if it weren’t for its VIP guests. Desert big horned sheep from the River Mountains herd have made Hemenway their unofficial headquarters, descending from the desert hills on hot afternoons to munch on cool grass and take shelter in the shade. Accustomed to spectators, the animals often get quite close to the small crowds that gather, but don’t push your luck. Those big horns aren’t just a stylish accessory.
