Sheep On The Mountains

Across from the display I showed you yesterday is another diorama, with thinhorn sheep, animals whose range includes the Yukon.


Painted into the background is a bear, appearing as a dark spot among the golden vegetation.


Panels below include information.

  5. Isn't it strange, to see replicas of the great outdoors inside the museum, while we are also relegated to stay indoors and just imagine the great outdoors...at least where wildlife like this exists!
