Rocks, rocks and more rocks in Kluane NP
Kluane nation park. It's a wonder sheep bother climbing mountains like this. They don't normally eat rocks. Neither did David and I (this photo is David - a good friend and fish biologist from Montreal). We didn't see any fish up there either. We did see Hoary Marmots though. They are kind of like Hairy Mammoths, except only about one hundredth the size and from a totally different species. The stuff in this photo that looks like rock is actually rock. The thing that looks like flowing rock in the bottom in the valley is a rock glacier. If we wait long enough some engineers from Los Angeles will probably try to build a casino on top of it.
