[Alternately, if you are coming from the cliffs at Seebe (see Chapter 12, 01 09 28, and 01 09 38), turn right (north) onto 1X (the road you came in on), go 2.1 km to intersection of 1A; go right (east) 8.8 km; turn right (south) at “Peacekeepers” building, proceed as directed above.]
The park is officially closed during wintertime though access by foot is feasible, weather permitting. You might want to contact Ray Greenwood, (403) 881-2614, for access arrangements, which may require payment of a $5 fee. Security guards in the area have been known to save paperwork by collecting fees from visitors on the spot.
Of course, we soon return to this spot under much more painful circumstances. This is also where Ennis ponders the dead sheep. And Earl.
Like many of the sheep scenes, this one was made at the Stoney Native Reservation near Morley. The lovely Bow River flows through the area but, in order to give this site authenticity as a high mountain location, the river was removed using special effects. See:
