Young Elk lays in the grass
Group of elk make quite a sight
Jasper has an excellent reputation for wildlife sightings. Driving into Jasper along the Icefield Parkway, it lives up to its reputation before actually arriving in the town. A gang
(the correct collective name – thank you Google) of elk
– a mixture of females and youngsters (calves) – lay resting and munching on the lush grass. In the couple of days in and around Jasper, gangs of elk are fairly typical, being sighted on three or four occasions.
