Last Thursday five of us of my hiking group hiked Ole Buck Loop in the Sibbald Region of Kananaskis Country in sunny weather. We were lucky to see only two bunches of crocuses and very fortunate not to see one of these big critters. He was wandering around the area because the very next day he was seen and the whole region, campground, day use sites, and trails are now closed. It was on the CTV Calgary news tonight. I feel very fortunate that I didn’t run into him because I am a slower hiker than the others, so came down from the top by myself. I wasn’t rushing either; just taking my sweet time while I enjoyed the warm weather and lovely scenery, totally oblivious of Mr. Grizzly.
