Oh! K-Country

Moose grazing in the meadows

Moose grazing in the meadows

One of the best places to see wildlife is K-Country or Kananaskis. Take 16th Avenue and head west out of town. Watch for signs to Kananaskis, take the exit and make a left turn. Drive south until Barrier Lake then stop for a photo. After Barrier Lake, there will be some spectacular scenery on your right. Pull over safely and take some photographs.

On our drive out yesterday, we saw two bambis. They were standing on the roadside so I slowly pulled over to the shoulder and turned on my hazards. We watched them and took several photos of them. After a while, they hopped across the road and into the trees.

We decided to drive further. After 10 minutes, I noticed a coyote running along the grassy area down from the highway. We didn’t stop but we admired his trot. Another 10 minutes and we noticed a line of cars parked to the right. We decided to join them and soon after, noticed that there was a moose grazing in the meadows.
