I went on a mini backcountry adventure this past weekend with my friend Josh Spice–a Fairbanks resident. Since we were close by, we took a short scenic detour through Denali National Park.
Here’s a cow moose and her calf by the road. There were lots of moose by the road, probably because it’s safer for mamas’ younglings since wolves and bears are less likely to attack in the presence of humans.
Here’s a porcupine. Sorry for the fuzzy pictures. It was around midnight and the light was really low.
