Bull Elk on the Road
Out of nowhere, this guy appeared right in front of my car on Bow Valley Parkway in Banff National Park. While he was reading directions, I snapped my camera and blindly fired a shot through the windshield..... I thought I was prepared for this situation, but obviously I wasn't.

Lake Minnewanka, or "water or the Spirits" in the Nakoda language, is very close to the city of Banff in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. As the result of a power dam at the west end, this lake has become the longest lake (17 miles) in the Canadian National Park system.
