With our friends Arlene and Cecil visiting for a few days we thought it would be great to show them our favourite place, Kananaskis Lakes. The weather was beautiful as we made our way through the snow capped peaks, we spent a few hours wandering the shore and then turned to head back to the car park, out of nowhere a massive grizzly came strolling along onto the frozen lake and walked around us stopping only for a glance.
Arlene and Cecil almost flew back to Kuala Lumpur without a plane but were reassured (well a little at least) when I told them I had bear spray and bangers with me. Though we were quite a way off the beast, the 300mm lens allowed me to catch some reasonable shots of that magnificent creature even at that distance, check out the gallery below to see the shots of the day.
We arrived in Calgary, Canada on 29th December 2011 to continue our journey. This blog is intended to keep our family and friends informed whilst we explore Canada.You can use the RSS feed below to stay updated.
