Trailing with the Sheep

I couldn't resist putting this in when I saw Dan Froomkin's reference to Benjamin Spillman's piece in his Bush vs. Sheep? [there's a difference???]

Benjamin Spillman writes in the Palm Springs Desert Sun about Bush's Sunday morning bike ride along the Clara Burgess Trail.

"Jim Foote, acting manager of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, said the Clara Burgess trail is also among those monument managers ask people to avoid part of the year to prevent disrupting endangered Peninsular bighorn sheep.

"The trail is one of about 10 in the monument under a 'voluntary avoidance' program. People are asked to stay off the Clara Burgess trail from Jan. 1 to June 30 during the sheep lambing season, he said."
