Black Bear feeding on Canada Buffaloberries
My friend Sandy and I had such a wonderful (and long) day out in the mountains on 10 August 2013. The scenery is so spectacular the whole journey, but Highway 93, the Icefields Parkway, is said to be the most spectacular scenic route in the world. We drove as far as Bow Lake and hiked slowly, looking for everything of interest. The Bow Glacier Trail runs along the right hand side of the lake and continues to the Falls that are at a much higher elevation. You can see these in the distance from the lake. On the return drive to Calgary, we were thrilled to catch sight of two Black Bears at the far side of the road, a short distance apart. Impossible to get even half-decent photos, but the one above shows the second bear, eating its fill of Canada Buffaloberry berries.
