We had fun driving to this area. We saw several animals, still no moose however. A red fox was spotted along the road, trotting, finding a trailway to get into the trees. Several buffalo were alongside the road, boy are they big! These boys are 2500 to 3000 pounds anyway. We had lunch at, MukLuk Annie's. All of us had a salmon plate, salad bar and ice tea/coffee.
Around every corner is a new vista to behold, aaahhhh the grandeur of it all. Off in the distance you see several layers of mountain ranges, some of which you drive through others, you'll drive around. Keep in mind too, that you really don't go "over" the mountains like in the western states, going over the Sierra's via I-80. Mostly you drive over and around alluvial fans from mountain erosion. They're plenty big and challenging with 8.3 tons of 5'er to pull! I'm told that the grades get less and less as we go more north.
