Moonlit Wolf Country

A nearly full moon rises over an ancient Nez Perce fishing camp along the upper Imnaha River. The forested ridgeline in the background descends from the canyon divide between the Imnaha River Canyon and the Snake River border between Idaho and Oregon. The two alpha wolves of the Imnaha Pack are known to have swum the Snake River and crossed intoOregon from Idaho to become the first breeding pair of wolves to offically “reintroduce” themselves to Oregon.

This ridge, long used by Indians and game, is one of many that could provide a path for the wolves down from the Hell’s Canyon divide and into Wallowa country, to once again howl at the moon from the forests, plains, and mountains of “The Land of Winding Waters” (Wallowa).
