Every Friday we feature an inspirational travel photo of a Canadian destination taken by one of our readers.
Why we chose it: In the Prairies, land and sky can blur together in winter. This snapshot of an elk herd on the snowy horizon illustrates just that, in Bob Creek Wildland Provincial Park in southwestern Alberta (map). Winter can be a fantastic time for wildlife-viewing in Canada without the crowds—of humans, that is.
