One of the great things about touring the Yukon is the great roadside mammals and birds. In under a week we spotted almost fifty bears! This cinnamon BLACK BEAR was one of several seen grazing along the roadside.

 Bison and caribou were seen regularly along the Alaska Highway. This individual was part of a family group we watched feeding for about fifteen minutes.

On several occasions we came across small groups of "STONE" SHEEP. This ram had a small harem of about four females. The group was remarkably tame grazing within a few feet of hordes of tourists, cars and RVs. 

The scenery along the Alaska Highway is breathtaking in places. Below is a scenic from the BC part of the route just a few km from the Yuikon border.
