We've been very lucky on the canoe trips so far this summer for seeing wildlife. We saw several bears, moose, including a calf who swam out into the river, mule deer, some very curious gophers, lots of birds, including eagles, swans, grouse, geese, ducks and ducklings, and some young flickers. We even heard some young wolves howling as we drifted along one day. And in a rare summer sighting, we saw a wolverine come down to the river.
This bear in the picture was along the side of Lake Laberge. We were able to quietly paddle in close and get a good view.
