3/27/13 - We just can't get enough of these wolf pictures from a Cook County trail cam. - Bill

Even wolves have to relax sometime.

We had some feedback that most of the wolf pics were of the back ends of the wolves. Here they are head-on.

3/22/13 - I'd like to share this wonderful video about North House Folk School. The producer and photographer is long-time Sawbill friend, Layne Kennedy. I served on the North House board of directors in its formative years and Sawbill's own Cindy Hansen works there part time in the summer. - Bill

3/21/13 - The trail cam just keeps on snapping cool pictures. - Bill

3/18/13 - Here is another lovely picture from a Cook County trail cam. Although there is no way to tell for sure, the size of the cat and the length of its legs would indicate that it is a lynx, not a bobcat. - Bill

3/8/13 - The Forest Service is busy ferrying latrines, fire grates and boardwalk materials into the wilderness by dog team. They stash the items in strategic locations so the summer crews won't have to carry the heavy items so far when they need them. With very few exceptions, the Forest Service wilderness crews respect all the same regulations that canoeists are required to follow, so instead of using snowmobiles to move heavy materials into the wilderness, they use a dog team. I'll try to get some pictures of the dogs in action. - Bill
