Ahead, somewhere in the thick clouds engulfing us, I hear movement in the scree.  We take a few more steps, then stop again to listen. The clouds thin just enough to reveal the outline of a grizzly only thirty yards away.  Its head is down.  The bear is occupied with the ground squirrel hiding in the rocks beneath it.  It stands motionless, then suddenly begins digging, moving two hundred pound boulders and bucketfuls of dirt to extract the squirrel.  We back up to let the bear pass us as it continues searching for sustenance.  Once out of sight, we hurry toward shelter as darkness sets in.

a welcome rain (at Whitefish, MT)
Took a much needed midday break from office work and ran up Great Northern. Car to summit was 1:20, 4,705ft gain.  I was making good time on the downhill until I found myself waist deep in huckleberries…I’m thankful to be living close to the mountains this summer.

Have you seen me?

Friends & Family,

As you may already know, I’ve been working on a project photographing wolverines (Gulo gulo) this past year.  Typically, I spend a couple hundred hours in the mountains to get a sighting—which doesn’t always equate to making photographs.  Enough of you are out traipsing around that you might be seeing them too.  I would love if you could send me an email describing your encounter* —with photographs if you have them.  The more details the better.  If your beta helps me out, I’ll send you a signed copy of The Wildest Rockies as a thank you.  Happy wolverine hunting! 

*hoary marmot sightings will not be considered
