I've never been lucky enough to see a cougar in the wild... Or a lynx... One day...
Wow .... that is amazing !

Gorgeous wolf picture!

The closest I've gotten to a wolf photo is the eastern end of a west-bound coyote... And even that from quite a distance...

No, wait! I had forgotten about this guy. This was in Yellowstone a few years ago. An elk had been hit by a vehicle and killed during the night, and this guy was feeding on the carcass. By the time we saw him, the park rangers were taking away the elk carcass and this guy was distinctly unimpressed. He (she?) had moved off a good distance (this is a small center crop of a photo taken with a 300mm lens) but wasn't willing to leave the area.

Looks like an adventurous first trip for you with the new trailer! One of the charms of enjoying our trailers is encountering the wildlife. We recently camped near Port Renfrew to visit Botanical Beach, as we were leaving we met up with this guy. He seems to have adopted the town and wanders about quite freely, without anyone bothering him. Some of the townfolk call him Bullwinkle, but I call him "Big Eric", (from the Monarch of the Glen series).

Incredible pics - all of them!

The closest photo I have ever gotten of a griz is at Bow Lake - near Banff. He was about 500 yards away. I had a 500mm lens and still all I got was a pic of a brown bump.

That's a good one .... doesn't he just look completely comfortable ! Big Eric seems more appropriate , since Bullwinkle was/is a moose .
