Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Alberta

The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel was built to resemble a Scottish castle.  We didn't stay here, just went for a look see.

 Driving through Kootenay National Park we saw our first bear!  He was crossing the road in front of us, and then went into the trees.  We did a u-turn and parked where he went into the trees, and there he was, about three meters away, munching on grass.  Unfortunately I couldn't get a photo because the trees and bushes were too thick.  While we were looking at the bear, (about 5 mins) a cyclist went passed who had no idea a bear was so close to him.  This one was a black bear, supposedly less aggressive than grizzlies.

  1. Fabulous! Glad you have your bear eyes in working order. Loved your other photos. I did the Whistler to Kamloops drive (we were passengers in a transfer) in winter - was amazing.
