While visiting Whitehorse, we took an afternoon to check out the Yukon Wildlife Preserve. They have various arctic animals in large enclosure areas, making for some decent photo opportunities….

It’s an interesting place with a noble mission of trying to educate people on the needs of the arctic animals and how the changing world affects them.





Fox at 12000 feet

16 05 2010

Last weekend, I had a chance to go up Pike’s Peak in Colorado (DROVE UP).  It was beautiful.  At mile 13 of 16 they had the road closed due to the high snow on the road still.  Mile 13 had us up at 12,500 feet! I could handle a slow walk up there, but much else resulted in some serious gasping.  Yikes! 

On the road on the way up, we ran across the cutest little fox that seemed to possibly be too tame for his own good…  Here are a few shots of the critter:
