This is one of the wolves at the Howler’s Inn.  Montana’s wolf hunting season started in September, and by the end of October, 25 grey wolves had been killed. Officials shut down wolf hunting and trapping near parts of Yellowstone two days ago.  These are such beautiful, spiritual, wild animals that I wish we could learn to leave in harmony with them.

Quote of the day: “We searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything beautiful it can provide. Most of all we love and want to be loved. We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering, nor prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls; that will take us for what little we have to give. We do not want to prove ourselves to another or compete for love. For wanderers, dreamers, and lovers, for lonely men and women who dare to ask of life everything good and beautiful. It is for those who are too gentle to live among wolves.”  —  James Kavanaugh
