The wolf pack came into clear view as I focused my binoculars. Several times over the previous years I'd seen this same pack, the Grant Creek Pack. They have been by far the most viewed wolves in Denali Park for almost a decade now.
This summer it's likely no pups will be born to this most viewed pack and pups are what keep them tied to this area of open country and viewable to anyone with binoculars and a little luck. Thousands of visitors from all over the world will now have little chance of seeing the animal many most want to see.
