Wolf Sighting

I was traveling the Alaskan Highway on my first trip to Alaska.

I was traveling the Alaskan Highway on my first trip to Alaska. As I was driving through the area that connects Canada with Alaska I saw a wolf crossing the highway in front of me. I was absolutely stunned at the beauty and grace of this magnificent animal. I slowed down hoping to catch a glimpse of him as I got closer. Imagine my surprise as I rounded the curve to find him standing on a slight incline watching my approach. I was able to make eye contact with him before he trotted away. I couldn't believe my luck. I will treasure this moment with a wild animal forever. I feel so fortunate to have caught one of nature's creatures in his home where he didn't seem threatened and was just as curious as I was.
