A young male grizzly bear strolls down the Bow Valley Parkway near Banff, Alberta

Driving between Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta, we rounded a corner to come across a young male Grizzly Bear literally strolling down the middle of a two lane highway. We maintained a safe distance from within the car while the bear seemed completely uninterested by our presence. We were able to take a number of photos before he ambled back into the forest.
