Caribou Crossing Sign!
When I’m on the road, towing the Teardrop, I always take it slow and steady. I cruise along at 50 mph (or 80 km/hr, since I’m in Canada) and let everybody else fly past me. I see a huge difference in gas consumption between 50 and 60 mph, let alone 70, which seems to be most people’s speed limit through life. Slow down! See more! Save money!
Driving across northwest British Columbia, I’ve been taking it even slower due to all the wildlife I’ve been seeing on the road. My count so far: 8 black bears (!), 5 wild sheep, 3 moose, countless bald eagles and an arctic fox. I hear I’m heading into bison, elk and caribou country so stay tuned for an update!
Hey Bear! So far, I’ve seen 8 black bears crossing the road. No Grizz, yet!
Looking both ways!
A Canid! Not a coyote, not a wolf…
Ooooo an Arctic Fox! This might be one of my all time favorite animal sightings, especially since he just stood there and let me get a good look at him. Beautiful!
That fox may be hunting these guys: a hoary marmot!
A Moose! I’ve seen three moose so far, two crossing the road and this one, grazing on river grasses. This is the proper distance for moose viewing, an important lesson learned the hard way…
Juvenile Bald Eagle, swooping down for a fish. I love the juveniles’ coloring! They’ll get their black feathers and white head over the winter.

As expected: Alaskan Highway Safari, Part 2!
