Spring in Alberta. Short notes from my camera view.

This year the spring began unexpectedly quickly, especially after such a long winter. Over one day, it felt like summer arrived.

Spring at Banff- we stayed with my parents at Banff Rocky Mountain Resort in a small cottage. Banff is such beautiful tourist town in the mountains.

Spring-in-Alberta43My favorite place in Banff is Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. This is a luxury hotel that was built during the 19th century as one of Canada’s grand railway hotels. Marilyn Monroe has visited the place in 1953.

The Banff Springs Hotel is located in the Rocky Mountains, just above the Bow Falls,

A place of amazing beauty, where mountains, nature, people, and animals synchronize in perfect harmony.

It is not uncommon if you meet a wild deer, moose, cougar, or bear. One early morning I went out with my little dog, we walked along a bicycle path through the forest. Eddie usually likes to walk, but on that day he pulled me back towards the house. Suddenly, I heard the crunch of a branch and looked up. Between the trees, I saw a large grey wolf running. I thought – What do I do?

I flew out from the forest to the freeway full of cars. I thought, if the wolf pursues me, then I can stop the cars and ask for help. To my relief, the wolf did not follow me. I returned to the home in which we lived.
