    so, checked into the Alpine and made my way in the early evening to the Lamar to see if any wolves wanted to come out to play. I did a short hike in the area behind Soda Butte but didn't go far as daylight was fading. No wolves today. Next morning I got up early around 5ish and headed back to the Lamar. Stopped at a few places and waited with some wolf watchers for a while but wasn't mean't to be. I saw someone I was waiting with a couple hours later getting coffee at Roosevelt and she says, "oh, about 15 minutes after you left we saw 3 or 4 come over the ridge"...great, just my luck!!...anyway, after getting my coffee I drove towards Tower and saw a black bear in a clearing near Rainy Lake. watched him for about a half hour or so before he wandered away. Later on in the day I did the Hellroaring Creek trail down to Hellroaring Creek and back. Pleasant trail until the end climbing back up to the trailhead. A little steep but a good workout.
