Jasper - Banff Trek 2005
Fifteen day solo trek in the backcountry of the Canadian Rockies. Most of the trek was off-trail, which made it extremely difficult but very rewarding. Click on the thumbnails below for an enlarged view or to play video.

Checking out the Grizzly tracks. It sounds like I was disappointed they were old. The fogged-up lens adds more drama to the impending attack.
Video of my camp at Center Pass (Day 7). Note to self: Don't pan around so much. It's annoying.

Mingle with the rest of the food chain
Live like they live
Scurry over rocks
Sprint into the woods for no apparent reason
And when you are tired, sleep on the ground beneath the stars
But keep in mind: some don’t like their position on the food chain
and could try to move up while you’re sleeping.
