Thank you to Anatoly for passing along this photo of the grizzly we encountered yesterday on the Mount Lady MacDonald hiking trail by Canmore. He quickly snapped this, as we quickly got into our tight group and before we quickly moved on from this area. Speaking on behalf of myself and I am sure of my hiking buddies, we do not promote pointing a camera lens at a grizzly bear that is in such close range as this one was at approximately 25 feet away. We were very fortunate this time!
