... day, we took a wee walk to a lake view, not realising that it was a proper hiking trail. Not seeing another soul in the path, we were watched by a huge Elk stag, and happened upon a tree, thoroughly gouged by bear. We made lots of noise: "Go away bear!" and Shona pretended to be a bit taller. On returning to the trailhead, we spotted the sign making quite clear we should be carrying bear spray. Hmm.

They are very pretty colours as well, due to the bacteria and algae in the water. ...
... the hotel, and then we were back on our way.
Our next stop was in the Fishing Bridge area, which was not a usual stop on the tour! For about 3 weeks every summer, these HUGE bugs hatch by the river, live for a few weeks (which is their lifespan), and then die off.
