solo_travels "I've did, I've done...everything that I wanted, and it was more than I thought it would be--I want to leave my mark so everyone will know...I was here." Many thanks to Carl Terhaar for the capture of us all roaming around the island back in 2012. 19h

wolfconservationcenter Wildlife biologist and author Rolf Peterson examines an elk carcass at Yellowstone National Park a few years ago. The wolves of Isle Royale National Park in Michigan have been in the news this past week because the population has dwindled to 3. This photo is a "flashback" to when some folks from the Wolf Conservation Center were lucky enough to take a Yellowstone Association Institute course taught by Professor Peterson, who has been studying the moose and wolves of Isle Royale for decades. We learned a ton and had a great time exploring Yellowstone with Rolf.
Here's an article about the current state of the wolves there: http://www.livescience.com/50574-only-3-wolves-at-isle-royale.html

solo_travels Well, it's finally May, and for the first time since 2011, I won't be boarding the Ranger III this month crossing Lake Superior over to Rock Harbor. Bittersweet, but in the best possible way. This island saved my life, and changed its trajectory. Its significance to my narrative can never be overstated. But alas, Edens aren't meant to be lived in forever, and I feel the Earth shifting beneath me as I grow on...further away. Michigan's in the rearview now. When I write the memoir that is to be a recount of my life, I'll be sure to include that Isle Royale was the one encounter that can never be repeated, but the fountainhead for my...Going places. Meeting people. Seeing things. 4d
