Dear Mr. Fenn,
We returned today from our most recent BOTG and wanted to tell you about a very exciting discovery. While we were in the wood yesterday morning, Donna and I encountered a fully grown wolverine! As a wildlife biologist/research scientist, I can assure you that this was an incredible experience…something that is too rare to even consider happening by chance alone. The Chase put us in the right spot at the right time. We will cherish this MARVEL GAZE forever. Donna found a newspaper article from last year that details the discovery of wolverines in the Wind River Range for the 1st time in over a century. There is also a short video in the article.

We anticipated being able to go straight to the spot that we’ve had an eye on since last summer to search for Indulgence. Unfortunately, foot travel became too dangerous and we were forced to turn back after only getting 1/3 of the way across the raging flow. We are planning to return as soon as conditions improve.
