Photo Friday: Bighorn sheep in Banff, Canada

Bighorn sheep travel photo taken in Banff, Canada

We spotted this handsome fellow while driving round the Banff area and, although I can’t remember exactly where we were, there are plenty of Bighorn Sheep in the area so a wildlife drive around Banff won’t disappoint.

We also spotted white tailed deer, grizzly bear and a black bear from our van while cruising round the Banff area. If I go again I’ll be looking out for elk, caribou and wolves.

Bighorn sheep are abundant throughout Banff National Park and as you can see this chap was right by the road, hanging out with his herd.

    This sheep has me in stitches… he looks terribly serious but a bit crazy all at the same time. I’ve never seen a photo or heard of this sheep before, so thank you for introducing me to them. As a Scottish-Aussie I do love a sheep or two.

    Elk are as common as cows in Canada’s Rocky Mountain Parks, especially Jasper … I’m sure you’ll see one of your next visit!
