Wolves in the snow

In a post last June i wrote about what it feels like to find the wolf at your door, and i’m glad to report that i’ve managed to survive sleeping out in the Sierra several times over the Summer without suffering furious fanged attack in the pre-dawn hours. Half-hearted hoofed attack maybe..but no canines on the prowl. Not a sight. Not even a distant howl.

Others however know exactly where to look. Witness the magnificent images of a pair of Guadarrama wolves frolicking in the snow a couple of weeks back captured by the prolific Blas.

Beautiful animals in their natural habitat..if you cannot see the wonder of wolves in this video, you are probably never going to see it anywhere. Not in Yellowstone. Not in Siberia. And we have it right here in the Sierra de Guadarrama.

Éireannach is ea mé, i mo chonaí insan Spáinn. Rugadh mé i lár na tuaithe, ar feadh blianta bhí mé ag teitheadh uaithi, i bhfad as an tuath, ach sa deireadh d'fhill mé, ar ais go dtí an tuath.. An Irishman am I, settled in Spain. Born was I in the middle of the country, for years I ran from it, far from the country, but in the end I returned, back to the country..
