Caribou on the Alaska Highway
This young bull caribou was alongside the Alaska Highway at about Km 720, on August 30, 2011. I was on my motorcycle, and the caribou seemed to be more curious than afraid. I believe that the open mouth is like sheep, an attempt to get more information about what he's seeing.
