    Expedition Report

    A Journey of Surprises Who could have guessed that the day we set out on the Wolf OR-7 Expedition news would arrive announcing Oregon’s lone Wolf OR-7 had found a mate? And then, although we had thought about it and speculated, we did not expect to hear the day we entered into OR-7’s new home […]
  • To Walk in the Wake of a Wolf – Poem

    To Walk in the Wake of a Wolf – Poem

    I wrote this just before crossing the California border back into Oregon again. It is dedicated to my team members: Rachael, David, Daniel, Jay, Michelle, and Wolf OR-7. To walk in the wake of a wolf is to walk into the silence of stealth and the feast of fearlessness, it is to fight for yourself and […]

    Cascade-Siskiyou Biodiversity Hotspot

    The final two days of the expedition saw our team walking once more from California into the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument in Oregon. It was immediately apparent that we were in a rich bio-diverse region. The pine forests gave way to mixed pine, oak and a vast array of flowering plants. The rolling hills covered […]

    Lassen County and the Sojourns of Wolf OR-7

    For a number of months in 2012 Wolf OR-7 called the open fields and lava beds of Lassen County home. During his stay he moved extensively amongst cow fields and forest cover, drawing huge circles on the map that tracked his GPS position. We entered Lassen County on a hot Sunday afternoon, cycling through small […]

    Standing on Lone Wolf Mountain

    Every expedition has a defining moment, be it for the team, the expedition mission or the individual team member. Today I stood on a mountain peak called Lone Wolf – it was my personal defining moment of this expedition into the journey of Wolf OR-7. The walk from our previous night’s camp, beside a small […]
  • Mountain Bluebirds

    Mountain Bluebirds

    Three beautiful bluebirds slipped through the grasses in the fresh morning light today, from a field beside the road, feathers lighter than the blue blue sky, in play, they announced: this is a day for joy, as they reached towards the only light that makes us come alive, I reached towards that part of me […]

    Adventure Cycling Day from Brothers Stage Post to Paulina Crater

    Wolf OR-7 crossed some wild open country across central Oregon during his dispersal into California, and retracing his route on the section between Brothers and Paulina Crater was a tough cycle for the team. For any mountain biking or cycling enthusiast this day was nirvana on wheels, but also filled with moments of despair. We […]
