Wolf Kisses

We're back from a few days camping with fellow scouts, followed by a trip to the White Wolf Sanctuary in Tidewater, Oregon. We're dazed and amazed by the lasting effect the visit had on our family, and how mesmerizing an encounter with a wild animal can be. In this case, all of these Arctic wolves were rescued from various traumatic or abusive situations and now reside happily here, on forty acres of fenced land. Here, Zeal gets a sniff and a kiss from a yearling wolf pup.

He's still talking about the encounter: making plans to learn more, visit again, and perhaps adopt a wolf. His creative little mind is working on the next step to make it all happen.
