Wolf Tracks in the Wilderness

Found along stretches of Pacific Creek in Grand Teton National Park were wolf tracks imprinted in sand, gravel and mud, which all gave different impressions, with mud usually being the most distinctive. Determining that tracks are from a wolf, versus a coyote, fox or dog, can be based on size, gait, pad separation and shape. Tracking predators stirs one’s imagination about how long ago the animal was there, its current proximity and if even the tracker could be the one being observed.
