    Wolf....

    As I was driving home in the wee hours of this morning, I saw a dog running down the side of the road. My very drunk husband was highly amused as I ranted about how it was four in the morning and I wanted to crawl into bed, but I am physically incapable of driving past a wandering dog.

    So I pulled over and as I did, the "dog" stood to his full height, turned his head and stared at me with bright yellow eyes. That's no dog. It was a massive, magnificent solid black wolf. He moved with remarkable grace on legs twice as long as my longest legged dog! Full of confidence and fearless. It was stunning to watch him.

    There is a wolf pack that lives within the City of Whitehorse limits and many wolves in the territory. I see their tracks all the time and have occasionally thought I saw one running in the bush, but I have never been gifted with the opportuntity to just watch one in it's territory, doing what wolves do. Totally made up for having to drive drunks around all night! I'm still a little awed.

    In a slightly ironic twist, yesterday was four years to the day since a wolf came into my yard and tried to eat Hobo!

    Wow, what a great sighting. Oh, how I wish you had a camera at that moment. I imagine he was an impressive sight.

    OK ... just WHAT were you guys up to?

    Were you the Sober & Designated Driver for the Wolf Tour ...
    or just the least-sloshed of those available?

    Where was one of your many cameras??

    Yukon February Night

    Weary drive
    Late at night
    Early morning more like it
    Snow-covered ground and trees
    Thinking only of home
    And bed
    And resting my bone-tired self
    Blurrily drunk passenger beside me.
    I drive wearily on
    When a movement catches the corner of my eye
    My brain cries Halt
    Suddenly alert, adrenaline flows
    As the movement stops and a
    Gold-eyed midnight silhouette
    Stares me down in wild magnificence
    Wolf! my heart cries, and leaps within me
    The wonder burns his eyes into my memory forever
    As I drive home
    Awake now
    And awash in awe.

    Tamara, what an experience. See, there was a reason you were out and about at that hour (above and beyond driving the drunk hubby home). Hold those images so they get sealed in your mind and your heart.

    Karen, what a lovely descriptive poem to commemorate the sight!
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!
