Banff's wildlife

I was 10 feet away from this elk?, maybe deer.
An osprey....it's like a bald eagle. The next was in the raftors of a bridge--HUGE!!!
You say 'squirrel'...I say PIKA. They are like ground squirrels and make nests in the earth that have foot wide openings. Crazy little buggers going after the bread someone threw to them!
Korey saw a goat on his gondola ride up a mountain!
I hope I get some comments today...wow, no one must have been impressed with my scallop supper. HAHA

Sorry no comments, I've been sick. There is tons of wildlife up in Banff. The hotel is beautiful. I remember it from when I was a kid. There's still time to see a bear!

I think it's neat that you can see the local wildlife so close!
You're a lucky lady!!
