So, this is probably the most memorable day of our trip. Usually, I gave Peter or whomever was driving the outfitters truck plenty of room to avoid an accident, especially since I could not see him through all the snow that was being kicked up behind him. Well…. we had not been on the road an hour and we were going to turn around and go back the way we came. And…. Peter got his trailer stuck in a snow drift. Now shit happens sometimes but we did not expect this to happen. All three of us busted up laughing. At first they had both guides trying to push the truck from the front…….yea…

Our attempts to help get the trailer unstuck.
After about an hour of trying we got back on the road. Peter our guide said it was “poor conditions” that got him stuck. So that kind of turned into our catch phrase for the rest of the trip when we did not want to take responsibility for something. (I still use that at home on my wife. But doesn’t have the same affect). For the rest of the trip we were thinking he would get stuck again.
The rest of the day was fairly in eventful. Jim (father in – law) said he could hear something in the tree line growling at him. But nothing ever came out.
Lots of signs but the wolves knew what was going on. They said they had pushed a couple of the wolves the week before for another group but no success. That may have been the problem, they may know not to leave the tree line.
