This Trip Report covers my all-too-short Christmas Trip to Yellowstone from December 25th-30th.
The last time I was in the Park the long-time alpha male of the Druid Peak pack, wolf 21M had
been missing several weeks. H ewas confirmed dead in July of 2004, of natural causes; his body was found
in a spot where he and the Druid pack often stayed in summertime. His long-time mate, wolf 42F had
been killed in a skirmish with other wolves that same year, in late January. Their deaths cast a gloom
over wolf watchers in Lamar Valley. Although we will always miss them, I can say that the gloom has now
now lifted as wolf fans have gotten to know the new generation of Druid wolves in Lamar Valley. In addition, many other packs have become regularly visible in the surrounding areas.
I hope you enjoy the tidbits of information about these wolves that I provide.
Thanks are always in order to John Uhler for starting the Web Page that made all the rest possible. And to Doug Dance for designing this page, for supporting my efforts and teaching me html and for hosting it for so long; and to Geyser Gary for providing a transitional home and endless support and encouragement. Merry Christmas to all Loons and Lurkers.
