A trip that started in the midst of massive caribou movement, over the continental divide to a gorgeous lake on the edge of the coastal plain.

Johnny Says: A great trip. Perhaps the most wildlife ever, with reasonable walking and ample opportunities for side trips. The weather kept us guessing for most of the trip.
