Where the wolves howl

The very most end of the South Arm from Yellowstone Lake. Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA, August 2009
Yes, here it was.
I like to remember the night in our tent at our backcountry campsite 5L2. (Some hundred meters from the lake.)

We heard wolves holing!
Just incredibel. What a sound. No fear. Awesome. I loved it. Can't forget it. True wilderness.
It was summer. A cold night. We snuggled up all together in our thiny tent.

"We listened for a voice crying in the wilderness. And we heard the jubilation of wolves!"

A thin tent isn't much between you and the jaws of a wolf!


Sky of wonder, sky of bliss,
Who would think a sky like this
Would permit my eyes to see
Sun and moon and stars for free?
