Bighorn sheep in the Jasper National Park in Alberta Canada

When driving through the Jasper National Park on the road to Hinton Alberta, there are several locations where you might see bighorn sheep if you're lucky. They like to climb on rugged mountain terrain, then come down to cross the road for a drink. If you have the time to stop and enjoy their antics, it is really a road trip treat. Speed zones in the area are lower helping to keep the animals safe.
