  Dall Sheep

We were lucky to have viewed numerous Dall Sheep during our 8 hour ride through the park. As a defense from predators they generally graze and live in the high alpine ridges and steep slopes. The bus stopped many time to view lines of white specs along the peak of mountains.

Not too good to photograph at such a distance but nevertheless decent wildlife sightings. On the main road of the park are wildlife viewing signs indicated by a pair of binoculars or photography signs indicating closer views suitable for photography.

Photo shown was taken using an 8X optical zoom plus cropped.
