Take the Bow Valley Parkway, a back highway that runs in the area between Banff and Lake Louise
I came across this beautiful and awe-inspiring grizzly bear in Banff, Canada. He had been hanging around the area I had been staying for a few days and had just come out of the river nearby. Literally strolling down the forest, he went right by me, as if he had an agenda, and let me photograph him as he strode past and entered the thick forest vegetation just past me. I'll probably never get to see something like this again, so I'll cherish this encounter forever.
