Driving through Kluane National Park I encountered these Dall sheep.

They are very sure-footed as they climb rocky escarpments.

With spring weather, more people are taking RVs out for sightseeing and camping.

Driving from Whitehorse to Burwash landing the other day I saw several owls. They don’t seem too bothered when a photographer stops the car and takes pictures.

Look out anytime driving the Alaska Highway as there could be wildlife along the side.

This deer was spotted between Whitehorse and Haines Junction.

Scenic views from Destruction Bay

Destruction Bay has a population of about 50 people. It’s always very windy on the shore of Kluane Lake.

The wind, in fact, is the reason for the name. When the U.S. military built a camp there while making the Alaska Highway it was flattened overnight by wind. The name Destruction Bay stuck.
