One of the joys of traveling the country is seeing the wildlife. While driving through B.C., we've seen buffalo along the highway, stretching hundreds of miles. While in Valdez, AK, the eagles are too numerous to count, and not shy about snatching a snack from your picnic table ! I guess one of the most wonderful sights to me was finding so many bear along the Russian River during the run of the Red Salmon! I'm glad I have a good telephoto lens for those, especially !
