Several miles northwest of Burwash Landing on Hwy. 1.
Having observed many animals beside the Alaska Hwy., I had learned that if an animal is sitting near the edge, he probably wants to cross. I waited a few minutes after the lynx disappeared and sure enough he came out and crossed the road some distance ahead, but I didn't get good quality photos.
While driving from Anchorage to California my son and I spotted this lynx sitting at the edge of the forest around 7 PM on the longest day of the year. I immediately began shooting handheld, but since he was in no hurry to move, I got out on the far side of my truck and went to the rear with tripod and managed to get several shots before he faded back into the forest. Not till I got home did I realize he had posed beautifully by the purple lupines.
