Ya Ha Tinda is just on the edge of Banff National Park - East and North. The valley from Lake Louise (Pipestone) extends into it and it is the wintering area for a large number of elk. It is also the area that they plan to release woodland bison this summer.
Ya Ha Tinda ranch is where Parks Canada overwinters their horses in a big corral.
Ya Ha Tinda is also an area noted for its wild (feral) horses. No one seems to know how long they have been there but they are really wild.
Anyway - I took a visit to Ya Ha Tinda today and here are my best shots. This is not my usual fare but it was fun just the less. It is a bit early for grizzly and I am anxiously awaiting them.
Anyway I hope you enjoy my efforts at "wildlife".
Comments and feedback are appreciated. Scott
