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.
Let's leave the rockies bound for pacific coast, on Vancouver island, Tofino. During a boat ride we observed sea lions then we walked along long beach one of the most beautiful ones of the island.
Finally, it's close to Tofino coast that we observed grey whales.
