Driving South on Highway 93, the Icefields Parkway, we were just South of town when we spied this strange standoff. A bull elk slowly sauntered across the highway bridge, directly toward a waiting car. As this is rutting time, you never want to make any sudden moves near a bull elk, especially one of this size, a mature 6 point Royal likely weighing between 317 and 330 kg (700 and 730 pounds).

You sit there in your metal machine,
not really knowing the things I’ve seen,
the battles I’ve fought, the hearts I’ve won,
you only think in terms of a gun.
I’m walking here and I’ll take my time,
move one inch and your fenders I’ll climb.
So, you will sit there and wait a bit,
I’ll hold you up! I don’t give a shit!
