Our Easter drive led us to lunch in Nordegg and a drive north along the Forestry Trunk Road.
On the way out along Highway 11 we were treated to the regal sight of an elk feeding along the highway.
It ran into the bush as we got closer, but I still managed to get a few pictures. A second elk, not shown, was nearby.
Wapiti, the elk, is my animal totem in the Medicine Wheel.
Among their other attributes Wapiti indicates stamina. They may be an indication that we need to check out how we’re managing stress and that we might need to build our energy back up.
