CANADA ~ Lake Louise - Banff National Park - UNESCO ~

... Great imposing bear view... a majestic and powerful symbol of wilderness... Canadian Rockies’ largest mammal... Lake Louise is home to one of the highest concentrations of breeding female grizzly bears within Banff National Park... they are mostly peaceful animals, preferring plants for most of their diet... they love to eat seeds, flowers, berries, roots, wild vegetables, grasses, fungi, fish, insects, and dead animals... only when defending their young and territory they can be very aggressive... postmarked on October 1, World Postcard Day👍🙂... Thanks a lot Glenn! ♥(ˆ⌣ˆԅ)

Most adult female grizzlies weigh 130–180 kg, while adult males weigh on average 180–360 kg. Average total length in this subspecies is 198 cm, with an average shoulder height of 102 cm. Although variable in color from blond to nearly black, grizzly bear fur is typically brown with darker legs and commonly white or blond tipped fur on the flank and back. 

The "Lake Louise Inn" is a resort for all seasons, offering stunning views of the Canadian Rockies, it brings the best of Banff National Park to our guests’ doorstep, a pristine mountain retreat.

Banff National Park is Canada‘s oldest national park, established in 1885 in the Rocky Mountains and is the third-oldest national park in the world.

Banff is part of UNESCO’s Canadian Rocky Mountain World Heritage site.
