When you go hiking in Colorado you never know what to expect, and you might even be fortunate enough to encounter a family of big horns.

This video shared by Hiking in Colorado via Facebook was taken at Mt. Antero, southwest of Buena Vista in the Sawatch Range.

Apparently, the male in the group would not let the hikers pass, until finally heading down the mountain after about 20 minutes.

Spotting these magnificent creatures in the wild and in their natural habitat is an awesome sight, and one of the wonders of Colorado hiking.
