Conni – 08-01-12 WY/Canada Trip – Sherwood Park / Edmonton, AB
Today, Bob and Francoise took us to Elk Island National Park, which is less than an hour from their home. Interestingly enough, this is not an actual island, nor is it mainly about elk. The park protects the wilderness of aspen parkland, one of the most endangered habitats in Canada. In addition, it is home to herds of free roaming plains bison, wood bison, moose, deer, and elk. After the African Serengeti, Elk Island has the second highest population density of grazing animals in the world.

After we got back, Francoise cooked us a delicious steak dinner. WOW!
