Photographer's Note

WE did a days walk of about 28 km in this dry and very hot, but beautiful park. Unfortunately we didn`t see any bighorn sheep.

Junction Sheep Range Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia,located near the confluence of the Chilcotin and Fraser Rivers.

Conservation
The area protects critical breeding, lambing, and winter range of the largest population of non-migratory California bighorn sheep in the world, a blue-listed species. Approximately 500 bighorn sheep live in the area, feeding on bunchgrass and other low growing plants, and finding refuge from predators in the steep breaks at the edges of grassland benches.

Location
Located 60 kilometres south of Williams Lake, British Columbia. Access to the park is difficult, via rough 4 x 4 dirt roads through private ranchlands.

Size
4,573 hectares in size.
