Mount Assiniboine sunrise with larches in Canada.

First Light After a Grizzly Fright

Banff, Canada

First light on Mount Assiniboine as shot just below the summit of a nearby peak, taken in the fall of 2022. We hiked up this same mountain the day prior to scout out the composition. We were pleased with the view so we returned to camp, which was several miles away, and set our alarms for 2 a.m. to hike back up the following morning in the dark. Just as we were near the summit we ran into four grizzlies: a mom and three cubs. Given it was still dark, I was unaware I had actually been walking straight towards the bears until I saw four sets of eyes staring at me. They were quite close - about 25 yards away - and the mom let out a small growl. Adrenaline through the roof, we slowly retreated to give them some space. At the same time this was happening the morning alpenglow was slowly starting to appear so I was hoping if the bears gave us enough room we'd still be able to take an image. Thankfully the mom led the cubs away and I was able to capture this incredible sunrise over one of the most beautiful peaks in Canada. The bears were off to the left side of the image.

The main reason I wanted to visit in the fall was to take in the vibrant larch trees, which put on a show for a few weeks each year. Unlike aspens, larches grow in the alpine, which is awesome from a photography standpoint. Look forward to returning to this area in the fall of 2023!
