As I alternated between walking on the road and the trails I realized that other than an occasional car, I was the only person around. As I walked through the woods and up and down hills and valleys, I listened carefully because I knew there were grizzlies in the area and I didn’t want to interrupt a mother bear with a cub. I also kept an eye out for elk, which, in the Banff area, are used to humans and have no fear. The only wildlife I saw were a few squirrels and a few songbirds.
A group of bikers passed by when I got back out on the main road and I made a couple of images to give viewers an idea of the height of the trees and mountains.
