We drove straight to Liard River Provincial park. We wanted to stay here on our way to Alaska but it was booked solid. We were able to choose our site, any that were empty were up for grabs.

Lots of babies and some are smaller and lighter coloured and some are bigger and darker but all still feeding off their moms.
