I just love exploring ridges in the great Canadian Rockies and this ridge (King's Ridge) is one with some amazing views, valleys down behind it that are untouched and beautiful for pictures

This grouse didn't seem to even care that we were on 'his' trail and he stood his ground, puffing up and threatening us as we passed. Must have been guarding some eggs, as they would never stick around otherwise. So colorful these birds.
