Expedition Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller Expedition Date: July 5, 2018
There are six major wild animals in Denali – bears, dall sheep, caribou, moose, wolves, red fox. We saw all but wolves and red fox. On the return three hour shuttle trip after morning hiking the skies cleared and we saw lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery. We saw most of the wildlife between Mile 60, the steep, curvy Polychrome Pass at Mile 46 and at Mile 35 on the park road.
We saw many moose but one moose came up very close to use (Photo#1 & #2). Between 300 and 350 grizzly bears live in the park. They feed on berries and salmon. We saw several foraging in the distance (Photo #3) plus moose on the run (Photo#4).
