Naturalist Emily Stone skis along wolf tracks

Then shapes in the messy snow along the ski tracks crackled through my subconscious and brought me zooming back to the present. Big feet … four naily, untrimmed toes…and lots of them. Suddenly I was skiing alongside the tracks of a wolf pack. They were polite wolves, for the most part, and rarely stepped in the ski tracks…History says they won't bother me. But biology says they could. I know that not everyone agrees, but feel incredibly fortunate to live in a place that is wild enough for them.
