The Animals of Denali

Everyone visiting Alaska hopes to see a Grizzly along the road - I am so thrilled to see another one on this part of our trip.









We saw a lot of wildlife on our bus trip in Denali.         This caribou was cooling himself on this snow patch.







This wildlife speciman was Jeremy, our bus driver/tour guide.      When we arrived at our furthest location, Wonder Lake, he disappeared and then reappeared as a fisherman.     He had given us 30 minutes until we boarded the bus to return and he made the most of his down time.    Unfortunately, he did not catch a fish..................

This fox was walking along the edge of the road.     He totally ignored our bus.







We saw many animals that I wasn't fast enough to photograph, such as a quail with three little ones and several native birds.

You should have heard some of the outdoorsy men shout out when they spotted this wolf.      He is wearing a radar collar for tracking purposes.      According to these "experts" on board, he had eaten very recently.







This was a good size group of Dall Sheep.     I had forgotten to charge the battery on the camera attached to my bigger lens, so this was the best I could do.



Tomorrow:    Hiking and sights around Denali

    1. Yes, we were in the bus with nothing allowed to extend beyond the window frame when we were gawking/photographing.
