Holey Socks! When we came up here three years ago, this leg of the trip we saw more wildlife than any other part – and let me say, it was a repeat performance. Just outside of town, we passed this sign.

10 minutes later, we saw a couple wild horses.

Wild horses and…what is that back there?

BISON!!!!!

I know these photos are a little fuzzy, but we were driving, and with a mama that big, you don’t want to stop and seem a threat in any way to these babies.

Then we came around a curve and saw this.

You could see the truck and another car had stopped. This parade had marched across the bridge. They always have the right of way.

Yo.

Oh. My. Goodness.

And all of this awesomeness, surround by beauty like this.

Moosie!

And another!

Muncho Lake with its stunningly blue water – even blue when it is frozen.

One of the dangers we faced, were caribou in the roads. They come to the road to lick the salts from it.

DSC_1982_edited-1
More caribou ahead!

You can tell it has been a long winter. Look at the ribs on this poor thing.

Another wild horse.
DSC_2020_edited-1
More caribou in the road!
DSC_2023_edited-1
Hey there!

And then we came around a tight corner on a steep hill and WAM. I mean…RAM!!!!!! In the middle of the road!

He pranced up that mountain like it was nothing.

Indian Head Mountain

It has been 400 miles today of breath-taking views like this!
DSC_2044_edited-1 copy
What is that up ahead???
DSC_2063_edited-1
What a pretty bear! We were hoping we’d see one of these!
DSC_2066_edited-1
DSC_2075_edited-1 copy
And something we hadn't seen in three years…deer! These were just outside of Fort Nelson. We saw a dozen or so of them munching grass on the side of the road.

Tomorrow we will head through the less mountainous stretch from Fort Nelson – to somewhere near the end of the official “Alaska Highway.” What might we see tomorrow?

Great post except one thing: most geocachers don't like bison and pine trees together ;)
