Bears bears bears
As you have already read and seen in our previous posts about our Canada trip , we have encountered quite a few bears. Not as much as 4 years ago (but we didn't go to Whistler where we saw half of them last time).
So clearly tip for those who'd love to spot bears : end of May, early June is the moment for bear encounters. They've woken up from their winter nap but have no food yet higher up the mountains, so they are at relative low heights, often grazing near roads.
We've seen 6 brown bears in total, no grizzlies.
Bear #1 in Revelstoke around and in our hotel garden:
Bear #2 near Kicking Horse Ski resort , Golden BC
Bear #3 Along the highway in Kootenay National Park:
Bear #4 Along the highway in Kootenay National Park:
Bear # 5 at White Swan Provincial Park
Bear #6 at the rest area just before Yahk along Highway 3, wanting to cross in a rush
