Stone Sheep


We were hoping to see lots of wildlife on our trip despite the fact that we were not actively looking for any. We were certainly not disappointed in northern British Columbia, however we saw very few animals in the Yukon. We were told that this was because at the time it was hunting season in the Yukon, but not in B.C. We found the best viewing areas were from Summit Lake, on the Alaska highway, to the northern end of Muncho Lake Provincial Park and along the northern half of the Cassiar highway.

This particular photograph was made close to the Alaska highway, roughly 10km south of Muncho Lake. Stone Sheep are apparently commonly seen in the area of Summit Lake, although we saw none in that area on our trip.
