[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.
Most of the High Ridge footage was taken at nearby Moose Mountain. This shot (which is actually quite close to the locations of the Sheep Staging and Sheep Tangle scenes) captures a bit of the lovely azure Bow River.
Try as you might, you will never find the spot you see in the film. This image is a composite. For a fascinating explanation of how this and other effects were accomplished, see:
