Mt Robson in the afternoon
Further up the road we cam across Moose Lake and stopped for a photo.
We had packed a lunch and decided to stop at the picnic area at Yellowhead lake for a break.
Thursday morning we left early for the drive thru the park on the Icefield Parkway. Just as we made the turn onto the parkway from Highway 16 a very large grizzly bear crossed the road just in front of us. Pam was not able to get to the camera in time for a good photo but he is still visible in the center of the picture. Notice the jogger on the right. Wonder what she thought when that big boy crossed the road in front of her?

About an hour after seeing the grizzly bear we made it to the Columbia Icefield Discover Center and stopped for a few photos.

Typical view from the center
The lakes we saw along the parkway after the center were mind blowing. Here are a few photos but they do not do justice to what we saw.
We stayed the night at Calgary West Campground and will leave this morning for Shelby Montana. If all goes as planned we should lay our heads down back in the USA tonight.
