One of the staples of Banff National Park are the ubiquitous Big Horn Sheep. You can find them beside the roads, on the roads, and even taking over the roads! These guys here were found roaming near the Sunshine Village base and gondola. Honestly, I never get tired of seeing these sheep. They just add so much flavour to the “mountain experience”. Mostly they are calm and stay out of your way (mostly, but not always). That being said, it is probably best to stay in your vehicle and avoid getting too close, after all, they don’t call them “wild animals” for nothing.

Never thought of going up there to see critters, usually try the Norquay one but it has been dissapointing the last few times. Will check out that road next time.

Very interesting brother @daveks , and the important thing is the respect they have for them, here in Venezuela, really, they catch them little by little, if they don't keep them locked up. They look very showy. Successes in your publication

So there's a place in Rocky Mountain National Park that's just called Sheep Lakes because the big horn sheep like to congregate there. I can't tell you how many times I went there to get photos of the sheep and never saw a single damn one.
Lovely photos, as always.
