At this time of year the sun is so low in the sky that north facing slopes hardly receive any direct sunlight. Across the valley Fortress mountain enjoys a warm sunny day, here at Wedge Pond it’s eternally twilight. 11:23am. #kananaskis

This girl is the moose who bed down in front of me. To continue that story (from last week's images)... The calf heard a noise in the woods and the three made their way back into the shelter of the forest. The calf and his mum went one way and this cow went the other. They didn't move quickly; they just casually carried on. On my way back to my car, I stopped to share my encounter with a gentleman who could only see the calf from his vantage point. After that, I carried on. When I got to the road, there she was... right in the middle! As you can see, she's not in a good spot to be sauntering along. I immediately started shouting at her, but she didn't budge. A truck was coming up behind me, so I started waving my arms - as much to alert the truck as to scare her off the road. But she just blinked at me with doe-like eyes. Then I heard a car coming around the corner behind her. After frantically yelling and waving my arms, she decided it was time to move on. No people nor animals were harmed - phew! So please take this as a friendly reminder to SLOW DOWN. PLEASE! I have seen far too many people speed through the park as if its residents were barred from the road. Spring is typically the season with the highest moose mortality due to vehicle collision because they are drinking the salty water on the roadside. There's a significant increase in traffic at that time, too. Unfortunately, this winter so far has seen moose hit and killed in numbers more typical of spring. Moose stand 5-6.5 feet at the shoulder and weigh well over 1,000 lbs. Driving cautiously isn't only about saving their lives, it's also about saving yours. The story will continue next Monday! What a journey I've had with this beautiful moose!! 💕
