Time to go.

Drive to Moraine Lake

We spotted a nest of ospreys.

This guy had a much better zoom lens than I.

Lower Consolation Lake

Ingrid takes a look.

It started to rain.

I spotted a grizzly bear on the way back.

Best way to see a bear: from 50 yards out.

Moraine Lake

The overcast and rainy conditions made me wonder what this place looked like under a sunny blue sky.

Without a doubt, this place looks nice rain or shine.
