Mountain Parks, Edmonton
As you drive around Golden, you will see these BIGHORN SHEEP abundant throughout the Rockies. The large rams are best viewed in the winter months when they are at lower elevations; in summer, most of the rams and many of the ewes can be found by hiking into the high alpine meadows in the park. The tourists and road traffic does not seem to phase them as I was able to get so close to a herd of them and they did not even move. On the day we drove up here, we saw on one side of the road a herd of female sheeps while a herd of rams across the other side down a few kilometers, like it was girls nite and boys nite out, so cute!
