Moose in the Tawatinaw Valley, AB
Tawatinaw Valley
The Tawatinaw valley is located roughly 100 kilometres north of Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta. It is characterized by steep sides, sand, an underfit stream, and it opens up in a fan-like complex at its southern end. During the last glacial period it operated as a tunnel valley and flowed in a southerly uphill direction because of glacial meltwater.
