Elk, Part 2

Yesterday, self and four others took a tour of “Banff Hot Spots” (Ironic title, considering the fact that it snowed. And snowed. And snowed. And kept snowing)

But self saw elk! And more elk!

Herds of elk! Baby elk! Solitary elks!

Here are more elk pictures:

Amazing! We saw a herd of elk walking majestically by the side of the road, and a solitary female in a field who was soon joined by three baby elk, and a group of three young males on a hillside.

It snowed all afternoon and all night.

Aren’t the creatures magnificent?

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Intricate 5: The Landscape of Trees, Rivers, Mountains

Banff was chilly today.

Here are some shots of the river. Actually, tour guide and geologist Jim Oliver took the shot for her (of the Hoodoo Trail), as self was freezing and it was raining and she elected to stay inside the van. Jim leads all the tours around The Banff Centre and knows everyone and everything.

She thinks the fretwork of trees can be suitably regarded as INTRICATE:

This second shot, self did take herself. From the van. She rolled down her window, and the elk was very obliging. Lifted its head and stared straight at her. The fretwork of snow (it alternated rain and snow, all afternoon) makes this shot INTRICATE.

This young male elk is just starting to grow its horns.

Self just heard on the weather report that it’s going to be freezing tonight: Banff and environs are expecting temperatures below zero. There’s a reading tonight of Writing Studio faculty and participants, so self will just have to bundle up.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
