Considering Wolves as of late

Posted in Jobs/Careers, Outdoors on November 8, 2008 by thealdertree

    I’ve seen another wolf while driving, and have noticed them much more as of late. While I go to bed the howls are echoed from somewhere north of the campus, I don’t know if I prefer it to the owl that kept on making noise, or when I first got here the loons with there beautiful & eree calls. While at work, I’ve been doing alot of brush removal and cutting up fallen birch trees with a bow saw by myself. This work is done at the resort, but with alot of the work it’s away from the actual resort and seems pretty remote. When dusk starts setting in they have been starting to howl, I think it’s a pack just on the other side of birch lake. I was throwing brush onto a burn pile in the mist (it’s been really misty, snowy, and foggy as of late) and heard them starting up again. I stopped and just looked out towards the lake through the norways and onto the fog rolling above the water, and just listened to the close yet far away calls coming from the lake. I just felt at peace and felt like mentioning it. Many noises come out of the superior national forest, and BWCAW, but I’m not afraid of any of them, I just appreciate them. I like being in the arrowhead of MN, many things are untrammeled by man yet. (but i still do miss home)timberwolf

I need a different job for the summer, working in the Garden Center at Walmart isn’t horrible, but I need something that pays well and I can do until college…. I don’t really mind what it is as long as I am able. I would prefer though something that has to do with parks work (just nature in general), or security, but I can’t find anything.
