This is the Alpha Female of the Canyon Pack in Yellowstone National Park seen in May of 2010. Wil shares his story, "We had been waiting for hours to catch a glimpse of her with many seasoned wolf watchers. As we were sitting at a picnic table chatting a lady with a dog approaches to tell us there was a wolf on the other side of the river. Boy did we feel stupid, we waited for hours, only to be so caught up in visiting with each other that we almost missed her appearance".
