After a day of marmots, moose, bears, wolves, bison, and pronghorns, I saw Vincenzo standing at the window of our cabin, looking out.
Me: See a cool animal?
V: No. But I can almost get wi-fi if I hold my phone up to the window here.
Rocco is the kind of person who cannot help himself from opening every drawer and cabinet in a new place. He was super excited to find one of the drawers in the cabin contained a book.
Nothing like a little light reading before bedtime.
Here is Leo at a ranger presentation, sticking his hand in an otter pelt and making it dance around.
It got us all wondering: in some alternate universe, is an otter pup sticking his hand into a human skin and making it dance around?
Kevin’s parents wanted to know how the kids were enjoying the trip. Kevin sent them this photo and text:
Here’s a picture of Rocco playing outside. He eats a lot more raw meat than we remember, but he seems happy!
At the Grizzly Bear & Wildlife Center we read about wolf #13—a calm and passive seeming male who researchers thought was lower ranking until he mated with wolf #14, a dominant female. Kevin turned to me and said, “I think I’m a number 13.”
The #13 kept following him around all week.
14 always was my lucky number.
Looks like it’s Number Thirteen’s lucky number, too.
