"Critters" Top 5 Page for this destination Road Hazards Tip by goodfish


Mule deer and free-range livestock (cattle and sheep) are common on or near the roads, especially in the park and along sections of Hwy 12. Some of of the cattle are dark and could be hard to see after dark so, day or night, keep your speed down and your eyes open!
