The last one is interesting.
And you must have a great trip.

My mushrooms are eagerly waiting to say hi to their mushroom friends.


Hello Sallie, What an awesome trip. Just seeing the wildlife would be a highlight for me.. I love the bears and bison.. Cool sightings of the caribou and moose.. I assume you only took the ferry up and are driving back. Great series! Thank you for sharing your post with my critter party. Have a happy weekend!


It must have been wonderful to see this bear and cub in a field of clover.Lovely photos......

Happy weekend!


The epic adventure continues-many congratulations on your Alaskan tour.It seems unreal to see all these creatures in open country!!!

This is an amazing tour you are doing. The wildlife is awesome. I am enthralled by your photos and I have to confess a little jealous as well.


Wow what amazing shots. You sure are having the adventure of a life time.

Amazing shots of wildlife.

Wow … you certainly captured some amazing wildlife shots. I hope the American bison in BC had their passports handy. :) The last picture is haunting … what a lovely atmosphere to have while enjoying dinner!

Oh my gosh! We may just have to go to Alaska and Canada! :-) My grandson would have loved seeing this wonderful variety of wildlife! The baby bison just thrilled me to pieces, and then there was a baby bear! You saw caribou, and moose, and it goes on and on....Cannot wait to see all your wonderful posts in the future! Continue safely on your trip!

The buffalo you saw are a subspecies of the plains bison, called wood buffalo or mountain buffalo depending upon where they are found. Sounds like you had a great trip, safe travels home!

You certainly spotted many wonderful animals in the wild as you traveled!


I like the raindrops you caught on film...an interesting composition. We have bison in Va. My granddaughter works summers on a bison farm.


Don't hurry! We are enjoy our (your) trip!



"Our Alaska Summer" has such an adventurous and romantic sound to it and your pictures all do it justice, Sallie. I especially love the Stone Sheep. Safe travel.


Fabulous wildlife shots. Love mama bear and cub.


Thanks for posting all the photos of your trip and your adventures. It is fun following along with you - the only way I am ever likely to see such sights unfortunately .


Such a Grand adventure.


Yes I'm sure Canada is almost as beautiful as Alaska. love your images even the bear in the rain.


What a treat to see such diverse wildlife. The bison would have surprised me too.


I love these images! So good to know we humans haven't wiped out all other life forms!

Wow - you really have seen so much. These shots are just wonderful!

Sallie, you are still a long way from the Similkameen, and I wonder what route you are going to take through British Columbia!!! Chetwynd is familiar, but still a days journey away. I hope you enjoy the Province and our wildlife, - two of our sons live west of Williams Lake, off the grid on a lovely meadow with a creek, a colony of resident beavers and otters, visiting bears and moose and deer and coyotes (the occasional wolf) and great flocks of birds in the summer and fall. Their blogs are on my sidebar - The Homestone and Touchwood Rings. What a wonderful exciting summer you have had - and the marvelous memories you have accumulated are a precious plus.

We are only ten miles from the border going into Washington at Chapaka, and another twenty minutes to Osoyoos....!


Wonderful photos! I look forward to seeing more pics from your travels.

I really like the rain in bear and cub shot!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Beautiful animals and country.


I am very envious right now. Driving to Alaska is on my bucket list.


Gorgeous wildlife! Your series of photos is amazing!!!

Even though your photos are fabulous, I know that the actual seeing of these wonders is so much more majestic! I'm so glad you're enjoying and sharing your journey with us!


Love the wildlife!

Patty Hartley

great pictures, Woodland Bison and Woodland Caribou?

jesh stg

I envy your trip - seeing all these animals! Don't know if I would have missed wifi that much:) But welcome back to blogland!


Wow! These photos are amazing Sallie. How exciting to see all that awesome wildlife. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us.


What a wonderful adventure, Sallie! My husband an I are looking at purchasing a Casita travel trailer in the next year - so much more to explore when you wear your home on your back! Have a blessed week! EnJOY the JOurneY!


What an amazing selection of wildlife, and so accessible. I would be afraid to take photos of the bears, I wouldn't have pictured them enjoying munching clover. How funny. I don't think I have heard of Stone sheep, they really blend in with their surroundings. I enjoyed your photos, have a great rest of your trip.


That's a wonderful and stunning wildlife.


What beautiful scenery! I'd love to see British Columbia one day.


Those are lots of amazing animals. I can't imagine Alaska critters let rain or snow bother them!


Greetings from Greece. Yes I'm on holiday too. IM loving your bears in the rain and those Bison. Catch up with you soon Sallie.


Those bears are amazing! Lots of beautiful scenery, too.
