Caribou have a spring migration and these days they are crossing the Alaska highway outside of Watson Lake and near Teslin Yukon.
It can be a real road hazard at night. A large sign can be seen on the road warning people about their presence.
Here are two mule deer on the highway outside Carcross.
This bear was spotted outside of Haines Junction.
I thought it was a grizzly bear but in fact it’s a black bear.
It was eating dandelions by the roadside only a few minutes after the end of the Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay which happened today.
The 250km relay takes place near Kluane National Park which is a place of great beauty and wildlife.
SAFETY NOTE: I took these photos using a 300mm zoom, from inside a car with the windows rolled up. I did not bother the bear and drove quickly away when I had snapped a few pictures.
Note the identifying mark of an injury over its left eye.
Spotted from the Alaska highway outside Haines Junction: A coyote wanders into the brush.
Here’s an impressive porcupine walking slowly near the Alaska highway. You can see the sunshine catching its impressive and sharp quills.
