5 kms South from Lake Louise on the Bow Valley Parkway, highway 1a.
I photographed this little guy from safely inside of my car. There is a bit of a sad story here. A few days earlier his mom was struck and killed on the highway just a few days earlier. I don't like to anthropomorphous wildlife, but I believe that I can see the sorrow in his eyes.
There is a happy ending to this story. This same bear has grown up to be one of the biggest and badest bears in the Canadian Rockies. The locals aptly call him "The Boss."
