While backcountry skiing on Wisherd Ridge, northeast of Missoula, Montana in the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area, I “topped out” and was changing over to descent mode on top of a rock when I noticed an animal coming up my ski tracks – a WOLVERINE!! Seeing one is extremely rare, hell, seeing TRACKS is extremely rare!
This was hands-down my most amazing wildlife experience to date! Tops all of the grizzlies, black bears, camel-size moose, marmots, pikas, dolphins, flying fish and everything else I’ve seen!
He was extremely curious, and almost looked playful the way he bounced around, sitting down a couple times, hanging out for almost five minutes! Wow! What else can I say!!
