Close, Rob, but not quite. The Beer guy was frequenting the local pizza joint. But he was ready for some Grizzly Paw, which everyone in town serves.

When I lived in Canmore, The Paw was one of my favorite places along with Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. I watched the Grey Cup at the Grizzly Paw.

Thanks for the comment, Jonathan. This would be a good place to watch the Grey Cup. For non-Canadians, that's the Canadian Football league's equivalent to the Superbowl, but with perhaps 1% of the popularity of the Superbowl. Football is not a big sport in Canada. Here it's all about Hockey! Hockey in Canada is about as popular as football and baseball combined in the USA.

Your Dog-Friendly Guide to Santa Barbara

Jhon Issac ·
I recently got a puppy shortly after my graduation. Living alone without having anyone to give my endless love was starting to bother me. Plus, as far as the word goes- A dog is a man's best friend, it's very true. So I got myself some time off from work and decided to travel to Santa Barbara. But I was in a real pinch. I have a four-legged friend who needs constant attention and care. I didn't have anyone to leave him behind with, and I personally didn't want to. So I decided to embark on...

I want to clarify a point I made about bear safety. The only time that anyone would want to fight back against a Grizzly Bear is when the bear Is mauling you continuously. Other strategies such as bear spray or rolling use into a ball are appropriate.

I really enjoyed this post and your beautiful photos! Makes me want to head into the bush to see if I can see some bears again. I've never seen a photo of a sow bear nursing its cubs, so this is an extemely rare photo! In all my hiking, I've only ever run into 3 black bears on the trail and those were heading away from me, cautiously looking back. That's a good thing. Where you usually spot bears is when you drive. If safe, I love to pull off the road and take a good look, maybe take some...

Kirsten, great piece! I had very similar thoughts when I saw the Salmon swimming upstream in Alaska. While it was truly an amazing sight, the Salmon were so beat up it definitely brought out mixed emotions.
