We saw a dozen or so caribou on our bus ride. This one was in the Savage River. Look at the size of that rack!
He stood around for a bit, and then must have really gotten tortured by the bugs. He began to spasm all over, and then took off running up the river. We had seen that a few minutes earlier with a younger caribou who had stopped in the middle of the road. He also twitched and shook all over, and then raced away down the hillside.
One of the last creatures we saw was as we were coming down the mountain near the Polychrome viewpoint. This giant golden eagle was perched on his nest about 50 yards from the road.
