As soon as we speack about Canada, the thought of nature and wildlife comes to our minds. Canada has indeed a very rch wildlife, starting with the bears. In september, they take advantage of the remaining time before winter to eat as much as they can with a view to increase their fat level before hibernation.

In the rockies we observed numerous wapitis. September is the begenning of the heat period for the males, it was strongly advised not to temper with them.

We were also lucky to see mountains goats (pretty seldom if we believe local people) and a coyote but too furtively! However, the only caribous we saw were on road signs!

On the contrary squirrels were numerous and not shy at all. More surprising we saw a lot of lamas breeding.
