Each week we pick a favorite reader photo and story.

The photographer: Oveta Riffle of Gold River

Behind the lens: On an early-morning walk along the south rim of the Grand Canyon, my husband, Bob Riffle, and I were surprised to see a bighorn sheep walk out on a rocky point overlooking the vast canyon. As he was looking out over his domain, he turned and looked directly at us as if to say, "I'm king of the canyon!" and I snapped the picture.
