We were returning to Banff late afternoon after an overnight stay at Jasper, a considerable drive when you have been active all day. After 5 days we had almost given up thinking we were going to see a grizzly bear when suddenly I sighted a car on the side of the road about 20 km from Lake Louise.

People had their cameras out so I thought we should stop and see what the attraction was. What a sight, mother bear and her 2 cubs just grazing on a clear patch of grass 60 metres from the road. The bears did not mind us looking, they knew we were there and I guess they thought they were a safe distance away. The 2 cubs were little fat bundles of fur, you just wanted to go over and pat them.

Address: They can be seen anytime , anywhere.
