I was hiking in Banff and came across this idol/memorial sandwiched between two trees. I had to climb over a number of downed trees to get in a position to photograph it. Luckily, the snow had piled up a bit so I was able to climb over the top of that.
Photo of the Day – Death Idol in Banff
It was a pretty weird memorial and I wasn’t sure exactly what it was but ultimately in my head I determined it was a makeshift voodoo doll/token in the middle of Banff trying to bring horror to such a peaceful place. I kept looking all around me to make sure I wouldn’t see the person that created the memorial since I didn’t want to find out if I was going to be the next victim.
