|Buffaloberries yielding bumper crops in Kootenay National Park in 2009,|
six years after the big forest fires of 2003.
Heading home at dusk, not far from the town of Banff, we saw our first grizzly of the year, a beautiful subadult feeding on grasses. We didn't have a camera with us, so we watched for a few minutes through binoculars, and then headed home.
And finally, in the bear department, after the presentations, everybody was talking about the video clip of a mother black bear in Kootenay who did some good quality parenting to keep her young of the year cub safe near Highway 93 South. It should put a smile on your face!
