ELK ISLAND NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA

June 2010

Elk Island Park east of Edmonton is an area of 'knob and kettle' topography, more accurately called hummocky disintegration moraine. It was produced during the melting of the vast glacier that once covered Alberta. Large amounts of embedded debris tumbled into holes in the melting ice, creating mounds.

Today, the many small lakes are important resting places for migrating birds.
