Jasper Elk in the Field

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.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
