Into the wild
Alexis Creek photographer Dan Hicks captures a glimpse of a wild horse in the Chilcotin. The chestnut guard horse of the feral Lee’s Hill herd looks toward its white companion as that horse stares warily at a motorist who has stopped on the highway. They were protecting their small herd’s five other horses, and especially the herd’s colt; all of whom had retreated to the forest edge and resumed their grazing. The horses ignored passing highway traffic.
