When Dan was on his way to pick us up to go hiking, he saw this Grizzly. Didn't have much time to get more than a couple of hurried shots.

This Bull Elk in velvet is going to be a big one, he has 3 more months to grow his horns. as the four front tines are huge, he may very well end up a 7x7.

After Hot Springs we went up to Lake Louise, 37 min (35.4 miles) via Trans-Canada Hwy/AB-1 W from Banff. It was cloudy and raining so we didn't stay long and went back to Resort.

Saw this wild Rabbit and Mule Deer in Velvet and shedding his winter coat near the Resort. The Mule deer still has three full months to grow his horns, He is going to be a big one, at least a 4x4 or bigger. The tips are already starting to branch out.
