This is a wild wolf in Grand Teton National Park.  The first wolf  I've ever seen closer than 500 yards (and these were photographed from a few feet away).  There is a long story associated with these pictures that I will tell over the next few days. Suffice it to say, today was a day I will never forget. I petted a wild wolf with my bare hand. Held a wild wolf's paw in my hand. Touched the fur, smelled the animal, felt the presence. Amazing.
