My entire life I've hoped to find and photograph Wolves.  Many trips to Ontario and British Columbia, Canada,
as well as Alaska and other places have left me empty handed - finally, at Milepost 46 on the Kougarok Road
north of Nome, Alaska (Seward Peninsula), on July 3rd, 2009 - GOT IT!
He was smart and sly, had seen him crossing the road and then into the willows just before stopping and looking
back at me, then I decided I'd be smarter than a wolf (hah!!), so pulled up just where he went into the willows
and turned the vehicle at an angle so I could get off a few shots as he came out the other side of the willows, wrong!
But, as I sit waiting for him I see something in the rear side mirror, and lo and behold the sucker had done a 180 on me!
But as he double-backed and crossed the road I was able to get off a few shots.
FINALLY after all these years for my quest to get shots of wolf!!
