The wood bison were everywhere along the road and they have to plow trails along the sides to keep them from just staying on the highway. You see, they love the cut grass on the road sides. The amount of bison poop was equally as impressive, let me tell you.
Afterward we drove on and passed a couple of spruce grouse on the road, likely filling up on gravel. Yes, they really do eat rocks. Something bigger caught our eyes and we realized we were seeing a lynx!
It was nonplussed by us and seemed to care less that we we rolled to a stop right next to him. We got some photos and video.
