Head to the Yukon and Alaska in November time to photograph bighorn sheep and bald eagles on this winter photography tour.
Bighorn sheep are one of the best-adapted animals when it comes to cold temperatures and high altitudes. Also known as Dall sheep, they leave the summer pastures and move down to the sunnier, but windier, slopes to avoid the snow banks.
On this photography tour, you will be able to approach and photograph the Dall sheep in their pure white coats in the Klaune National Park. This is also the beginning of the mating season, which is an ideal time for wildlife photography as the bighorn sheep are focused on mating and are less likely to be spooked.
We will also head to the Chilkat River, north of Haines, where a late run of chum and coho salmon attracts birds looking for food in the winter. The warm groundwater springs prevent the river from freezing, and bald eagles gather in their thousands at this location.
