Kananaskis Moose: Cow and Calf

I was in Kananaskis for the sunrise on Mount Kidd above Wedge Pond on the weekend.  I finished the landscape photography by 7:30 and then headed along Highway 40 up towards the Highwood Pass to enjoy the beautiful drive and keep an eye out for wildlife.  Just after  the summit this cow and her calf were grazing on the edge of the forest.

I pulled over and stayed with them for about half an hour.  One of the beautiful things of Kananaskis is that it has nowhere near the volume of traffic as Alberta’s neighbouring National Parks.  There are rarely bear jams on the road and when you find wildlife, there isn’t the frenzy of crowds agitating the animals.  So, with these two beautiful moose, I was able to share time and enjoy watching them.

Earlier at Wedge Pond, I met a fellow photographer, Chuck Kling, visiting from Montreal with his wife.  We met again at these moose and it was fun to share that moment.  They come to photograph wildlife in Alberta frequently, a good reminder how nice it is to live in these parts.
