A Farley Mowat inspiration

This week, one of the world’s most acclaimed writers of all things wild took his last feisty breath. Farley Mowat died at the age 92. He left a legacy of memorable tales and a spirit celebrating the importance of the world’s wild places and its many inhabitants, including predators like wolves. I watched a clip on YouTube of Never Cry Wolf, a fabulous film that is among my favorites. The film was filmed in northern British Columbia, a breathtakingly beautiful place. I never got to the locations where production took place (near Atlin, B.C.), but I did visit the nearby Whitehorse area and took a hike above the low-lying range above town. Here are a few throw-away pictures I took. This is by no means true photography. This is just a remembrance, and a place that makes me think about wolves, wild things, and that ole’ kilt lifter, Farley. Thanks for never shutting up.
