Just outside Banff we trekked around Lake Minnewanka and Two Jack Lake. Both picture perfect framed by wonderful silence.
Neither of us have walked in such a huge snowy landscape. The scale of the scenery and it’s complete lack of human footprint, set this landscape apart from Europe.
It’s good to be here pre-season. There’s a few RVs in the car park and a couple of Chinese tour groups, but that’s it.
We asked about bears. Yes – there are lots of Grizzly Bears and Yes – they have come out of hibernation by late April. We were advised to talk loudly as we walked and buy some bear spray.
