We’re driving through the Canadian Rockies of Alberta where the landscape is unbelievably gorgeous and the weather just right for a summer holiday. Our journey begins at Banff, a quaint town located uncharacteristically inside a national park, and takes us to the snow-drenched Lake Louise. Along the way, we sight a record five bears in one day.
