*** (Bow Valley Parkway) Highway 1A “This is an just an alternate highway to Lake Louise, but you can travel at much slower speeds and you may have a chance of seeing wildlife.  If you see other cars stopping, especially tour buses, that usually means there is something out there.  Early in the morning you might have a bigger chance to see wildlife. ” See Johnston Canyon

Interesting fact:

“The Trans-Canada Highway near Banff has million-dollar overpasses just for wildlife”- Canada Cool

Johnston Canyon You can walk along the Canyon listening to the water and feeling the breeze.  There is a paved walkway to the second waterfalls about 3 Km one way.  You will see ancient water erosion of the canyon and see how long it took to what we see now. Johnston Canyon Resort. Wear comfortable shoes, a walking stick is handy. Winter: Ice climbing. The catwalk and waterfalls are frozen in winter, use ice walkers and a walking stick.
