Dall sheep above Savage River

Dall sheep above Savage River

Location: Denali National Park, Alaska
Date: 22 August 2002
Camera: Pentax ZX-50
The Dall sheep were amazing in their ability to maneuver on steep cliffs -- I watched one run across a cliff face that would have taken me at least ten minutes to walk across. They spent large parts of the afternoons perched on high, inaccessible rocks where they knew they were safe from any predator, and such times made for amazing photo opportunities.
