    If you get a chance, you may want to visit Elk Island National Park. Just a 45 mins drive East of Edmonton (take Yellowhead Trail Eastbound; Highway 16, and follow the signs), it is home to herds of free roaming plains bison, wood bison, moose, deer, and elk. I remember a time when I was there and I stepped into a BIG PILE of bison poop. Sooooo, watch where you're stepping.

    Visit Elk Island National Park, an unspoiled wilderness of forests and likes which is a wildlife reserve. It is about an hour drive east of Edmonton on Route 16 (the Yellowhead Highway). Elk, wood bison, moose, and deer roam here, and hundreds of species of birds can seen. The park has hiking trails (from 2.5 to 18 km – 1.5 ti 11 miles), cross country skiing trails over rolling terrain, and a few lakes.
