Banff National Park – Wildlife (Bears)

Working around the crowds when visiting the parks means lots of early mornings. Best time for pictures, easy to get parking and LOTS of bears out (not that I think that is a good thing). We ended up seeing 14 bears on our visit! Obviously we survived the ordeal.

We finally crossed over into Canada for our first stop in Fernie, British Columbia.

We chose to stay up at the Fernie Mountain Resort, dry camping in their parking lot. For a small fee they have parking spaces that you can enjoy for 3 days. We found the parking lot fairly level with amazing views. The mountain offers a small store, a bar and tons of amazing downhill mountain biking.
