Many species of birds only live above 7500'. There aren't many places that have a highway to that elevation.
Moose, elk, deers, and black and grizzly bears are plentiful in the area, mountain goats and sheep are sometimes seen near the West Summit.
If you are looking for wildlife, scenery, or alpine flowers, this is the place to be!
