The Soldier's Summit Trail

Here's what Tachäl Dhäl (Sheep Mountain) is famous for - Dall sheep (Ovis dalli. These all-white thinhorn sheep live only in northwestern Canada and Alaska. They prefer to live at or above treeline, where they can see danger approaching from a long distance. Unlike mountain goats which prefer inaccessible cliffs, sheep will usually be found on steep, grassy slopes that face south to get the most sun possible.
