September 1, 2009

Even though we have had many days of rain, the fall colors are still beautiful here in Denali Park. We are being teased today with some blue patches of sky, and occasional glimpses of sun. This morning we could even see part of the mountain. This all means that our days here are getting short. We are anxious to get home and see all of our family and friends, but we will miss this place.

Just after supper last night, Dave tapped on the window and pointed out a coyote in the road right in front of the trailer. Val rushed out to get a picture. She did get one but he had traveled up the road a ways by the time she snapped him. When Natalie was here she found a sizeable hunk of fur laying on a bush down by the old runway. It is definitely not snowshoe hare fur, it looks like wolf or coyote fur. Although Dave and Val have not seen any wolves this year, Natalie is pretty sure she saw one in a walk down by Jenny creek, and when Kym was here she photographed a wolf print down in the same area. So it could likely be coyote fur, the coyote being killed by a wolf. Or maybe it's wolf fur, killed by another wolf. Or maybe…it was the intrepid beagle. He saw the wolf, he grabbed it by the throat, and with his powerful jaws tore its throat out and spit down its neck! Let that be a lesson to you – you nasty wolf. I’m leaving your throat hair here just as a reminder not to mess with the beagle.

Yours for control of the wolf population,

Remington Beagle
