Alaska Trip Photos 1 - Wildlife On the Way

Yearling moose along the highway in Canada

Cassiar Hwy, Canada

It's rare to see a wild cat, let alone in daylight.
This lynx was so pretty.

Caribou are very shy. At least when I've seen them roadside. It's hard to get a good photo of them roadside because they take off running so quickly as you approach. But I just love caribou, especially the males with their huge antlers (another photo later). Caribou are related to reindeer and are among the few animals whose females have antlers, too.
