Canada – Jasper National Park.

Today was an animal extravaganza.    We were on the Icefields Parkway – one of the most beautiful roads in the world according to surveys, so lots of scenery. Initially we went to Maligne Canyon.  I saw a chipmunk but wasn’t quick enough to get a photo.  After we’d done that walk it was back to the bus.  Not that far down the road were Mountain Goats – also no photo – wrong side of the bus.  A lone Coyote – managed to get those photos.   BUT next thing we saw a car stopped on the side of the road, so we slowed down to see why – BEAR!   I managed to get myself to a good position in the front of the bus and got some shots.  From there it was Columbia Glacier, interesting but sooo cold.   Its been lightly snowing all day.  Crossing a bridge we got held up because Mountain Sheep were on the bridge.  We are now at Lake Louise – still snowing.  We all stood in the snow to have the group photo taken, and are now in our very nice rooms.
