Bull Elk in the Jasper National Park
During the trip through the Jasper National Park last month, we found an elk feasting in a vibrant meadow on one of the evenings. This bull’s antlers were one of the most impressive I have seen on a young elk. The summer seemed to be moving along well for this beautiful creature judging by the growing rack and the shiny coat.

You have a fantastic eye for a picture! I’d love to go to Jasper one day – I did Banff 10 years ago, but regretted not heading north – hopefully one day!

When you get there you will love it. A different feel from Banff and the wildlife lives up to all expectations. Thanks for commenting Andy – all the best to you!
