Zolkewich: “We’re all aflutter because we’ve seen wildlife. Five minutes down the road, a bull moose steps out of the bush. We stay a few strides behind him as he trots alongside us — for half a kilometre, giving us a good look at his blacker-than-black hide and displaying his goofy run. Within a hour we see six moose, seven elk, one fox, 50 bison (because there’s a resident herd in an enclosure at the park) and two whitetail bucks in velvet. This is all before breakfast.”
