Wildlife to Watch: On the drive in, watch for bald eagles along Sherburne Reservoir. Look for bears and coyotes in the aspen groves; listen for common loons and bugling elk in the fall. Mountain goats are common on Grinnell Point, while bighorn sheep are often seen near Ptarmigan Lake. Grizzly bears are often seen on the talus slopes along the upper part of Mount Altyn. In November, bighorn sheep move to lower elevations and are sometimes visible, particularly on the lower slopes of Mount Altyn.
