  • Build it and they will come

    Rather large 100k pic. I got in email this morning


    This is the actual turnoff from Banff to the # 1 highway to Calgary.

    Great picture isn't it? They had to build the animals (especially the elk) their own crossing because that was where the natural crossing was and after the highway was built there were far too many accidents. I understand it didn 't take the animals long to learn that this was their "road .

    That's very cool. Is that new? I lived under a bridge in Banff for a few weeks years ago and don't recall seeing anything like that.

      That is a great pic, Carl. I've driven over that piece of road but unforunately it was "elkless" at the time.

      We did see a lot of them in Jasper though - woke up one morning to find a herd of about 16 of them all round the cabins in the campsite we were staying at. They're very impressive animals .. and that is a beautiful part of Canada - away from the concrete overpasses of course ..lol

                      I don't know about the roses but they do make good swizzel stick toppers for a cocktail. In Alaska they make all kinds of crazy stuff out of Moose Poo, there are ear rings, necklaces, Christmas Ornaments...etc.

                        i agree with Carl - I think most animal poo - well rotted, as with horse manure - is probably good.

                        Toronto zoo sell "Zoo Poo" Kind of gives a whole new meaning to "Where there's muck there's brass"...

                          Neat picture.


                          Now if you could only figure out a way to get your Canada geese back I would appreciate it.

                            I would think with the new passport laws that shouldn't be a problem. Specially since they travel by air.

                              They tend not to land at airports though, Carl ..

                              I just had this wonderful mental image of the USAF patrolling the border checking for incoming Canada Geese .. ROTFL

                                Hey Quartz - thats great scrolling and carving work which the LED lighting sets off a treat - or was that a trick?

                                Love it!
