Happy New Year!
Are you looking for things to do in Jackson while you visit…look no further for winter fun!
Yeap, you guessed it. Big Horn Sheep.
Nestled just outside of the town square, you can drive down a dirt road onto the National Elk Refuge and see these guys most days during the winter season!
Check out the Map below. If you take Broadway east past the hospital you will come to a dead end right by the National Elk Refuge sign. Take that left onto a dirt road…follow that and keep an eye out for Big Horn Sheep!!
During the winter months the big horn sheep are actually attracted to vehicles so drive slow and be careful. If you are patient they will come to you!
Can you believe that!
It’s one of Jackson’s most incredible experiences. (Besides the powder skiing, of course!)
If you have children they will love this…encourage inside voices and keep those little fingers in the car. You might have to remind some of the adults too. haha.
Be sure to bring a camera as they are always willing models…
It was a free car wash for the Jeep…they even got up on the rear bumper to lick the salt off the window!
So check it out…let us know if you get to see them!
Just remember; always be respectful as we are on their land in the Elk Refuge…enjoy the fun!
