Dall Sheep!

The Seward Highway is supposed to be a wildlife lover’s paradise— beluga whales surface in Turnagain Arm, brown bears forage along the mudflats, moose feed in the marshes, bald eagles call from the treetops, and Dall Sheep frolic on the rocky mountains. But I have yet to see any animals since my eyes are always glued to the road ahead of me. However, on my way back from Anchorage this past Thursday, I finally spotted a female Dall sheep and her baby. Hopefully I’ll glimpse the males’ gigantic tightly curled horns before I leave!
