Cute ponies in the New Forest to scary cougars in Alberta.

This is the road into Sheep River provincial park. As you can see from the sign, it’s closed to motorised traffic for half the year, but with Easter weather as great as this, there’s nothing stopping you walking or biking it. Because it’s an hour and a half from Calgary there are very few visitors. We cycled for ninety minutes deep into the park and saw no-one.
The only inhabitants were the eponymous bighorn sheep, a few eagles, and flocks of beautiful Bohemian Waxwings.
