Friday Field Trip: Hanging With Wolves

Jason's back, and I thank him for taking the time to send some more of his fantastic wildlife shots. When we were looking at homes in the Divide area, I did a little Googling, and discovered one of the local attractions was the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Rescue Center. So when Jason told me he'd had a chance to go behind the scenes and get up close and personal with some of their critters, I thought it was the perfect time to share them. And I'm definitely putting a visit to the center on my "to do" list.

And, for a little variety, here's a fox.

Want more? Click here for a look at lots more phenomenal shots. I'll be at the Pikes Peak Writers Conference all weekend. I'll share my notes next week.

Amazing photos. I love them all, but the third and fifth one grab your attention. The fox is a fun shot. BTW, I have an award for you at my site. Have fun at the conference.

Jason is a talented photographer. Great pictures.

Love all these. Very nice. Thanks for sharing with us. Enjoy the conference!

Great shots! The first one is my favorite. Looks a little more innocent, like a house pet. Sure he/she's not though.

I once saw a pic of wolfe babies. They reminded me of my beagle. Maybe Jason can get some baby shots some time. They are cute.

These are beautiful!

On Jason's behalf: Thanks to all for the comments. I can't wait to go to the refuge in person.

Back from the conference; busy packing! Official "new house as permanent residence" day is Tuesday.

Those are beautiful photos (thanks to Jason for letting you post them on your blog).

There's a wolf refuge up here in the northern part of the state too. We also have a well-known raptor center where many broken beauties are nursed back to health and set free to fly again. I love that Colorado wildlife advocates do so much.
