We are in the middle of the Annual “Snow Days” festival in Banff and Lake Louise, and that means wildlife shows up in unexpected places, courtesy of talented snow and ice carvers. Banff’s snow sculptures on bear Street are really impressive this year, and include a wolf, a lynx, and a trio of bison.
Here in Lake Louise, at the Ice Magic Festival, there are frozen bears, wolves and Northern Lights.
The carvings and sculptures usually stay in pretty good shape for a couple of weeks, so if you are in the park, check out downtown Banff or the shore of Lake Louise for some frozen art.
By the way, if you are wondering what wildlife is really showing up on the streets of Banff, an RCMP officer picked up this image of a cougar on his dashcam video a couple of weeks ago.
