the wolf people.

{Lamar Valley, Yellowstone}

{setting up shop takes serious concentration}
at 6 am on saturday we left cooke city, montana and headed into lamar valley.
we were told to look out for a guy in a yellow xterra...he's the wolf man.
we found the yellow xterra.
plus other cars with license plates like "WOLFLVR" and "LONEWLF".
after a short hike we found 30 people all peering into their three thousand dollar scopes.
they'd been there since 4am so we were totally late.

after finally setting up our borrowed scope, (see above....such wolf amateurs.)
we spotted the pack.
but i'd be lying if i said i thought they were more incredible then the pack of people watching them.

i had no idea these people existed.
one woman left her teaching job in san diego to move up here to watch wolves.
all. day. every. day.
they all knew each other and they all knew everything about the wolf pack.
i'm sorry but how the hell can you tell which pup belongs to which wolf at 2 miles away???
i'll give it to the pack peeps that at least they are passionate about something...
nat. geo should totally hire them.  or maybe document them.

{hundreds of bison in the roads} 
{can you spot the grizzly?  i didn't want to spook him with a flash}
{bison sitting in front of our cabin.  i was laughing too hard to get a good photo!}

we also spotted 2 wolf packs but my lens wasn't capable of zooming that far!
i do however, have photos of the wolf pack PEOPLE.
stay tuned...

wanna know something ironic?

i'm allergic to eggs.

i had my blood drawn a few weeks ago to see what exactly has been pissing my stomach off.
welp, of all the things.....eggs.
along with all dairy products.
boo, no more late night soft serve yogurt sessions for me.

got any egg & dairy free recipes for this gal?  shoot em my way.

can't get enough.

the golden aspens this year are to die for.

much love,
