Autumn 2020 – Part 14 – Lady of the Forest – Jasper National Park

September 29, 2020.

Back at the resort after our hike, we opted to walk back along the laneway to Pyramid Lake Road to get a better look at the lake and the fall colours. Along the way, just as we were opining about the lack of wildlife, we spotted this young lady grazing on the forest foliage.

The elk (wapiti) are the largest species within the deer family and were in the middle of the rutting period. As such everyone had to watch out that they did not get too close to the bull elk or in between him and his harem. This solitary female was quite happy to be almost invisible, while she grazed.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.
